Clemens denies drug use allegations

Roger Clemens issued a statement through his agent Randy Hendricks regarding him being named in the Mitchell Report last week.

From Ronald Blum:

"I want to state clearly and without qualification: I did not take steroids, human growth hormone or any other banned substances at any time in my baseball career or, in fact, my entire life," Clemens said Tuesday in a statement issued through his agent, Randy Hendricks. "Those substances represent a dangerous and destructive shortcut that no athlete should ever take.

"I am disappointed that my 25 years in public life have apparently not earned me the benefit of the doubt, but I understand that Senator Mitchell's report has raised many serious questions. I plan to publicly answer all of those questions at the appropriate time in the appropriate way. I only ask that in the meantime people not rush to judgment." (Yahoo! News)
The dirt on Clemens was rather detailed, so I'll be interested to see what else Clemens has to say.

The section on Clemens begins on page 215 of the .pdf file.
