Clemens Files Defamation Law Suit

Several news outlets are reporting that before Roger Clemens' interview on "60 Minutes" last night that the former Cy Young Award winner filed a defamation of character lawsuit in a Texas State court against former trainer Brian McNamee. This looks to be the Rocket's first step in trying to vindicate himself againt the steroid alligations made popular in the Mitchell Report.

Clemens' fantasy value is now near nill. The former Red Sox, Blue Jays, Yankees, and Astros star will probably spend next season more concerned with clearing the good name of his Hall of Fame career than getting batters out. The Rocket said during the interview that the alligations of steroid use and proceeding firestorm has turned him off to yet another comeback. If you want to take a last round flier on the Rocket, go ahead. But I am not sure it is even worth it this season.
