He's never in my life and that interview was my family and -- -- heart -- my stepmother.
That you can actually have my.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- That is why not -- -- I think it was air -- -- I guess being a baseball again.
No it's that it weighs seven cy -- anyone in the -- and -- Barry Bonds' records.
We we we're gonna go from here I guess we gentler path it's just got troubles.
I work with the judge and the radio he has I don't know how he avoids jail he lied under -- in the got a proven that the -- -- could match which he says he never took knowing -- rejected which you can see.
And how it got there and listen to put up some sort of two -- that's supposed to -- ends exactly I don't.
What an old coffee can -- Well it's gonna say all they -- -- do Avery is that we should have a lawyer because all they need to do is create some kind of reasonable doubt -- -- jail time will go away but the point is in the court of public opinion with -- and they sent -- Dawn actually I only when it says I I got to -- another chance right now.
How could somebody Clinton -- the -- that someone was asked them into orbit.
-- -- -- -- Oh no wait a second did not.
Get that did not happen.
It possible that you gotta be you can make that up.
You know -- not feeling you know what did -- can destroy my bedroom.
-- describe you know and the bottom line and you don't actively.
I don't -- well I don't mind that because you came to the Yankees with Roger Clemens via there -- -- -- the dangers of allowing.
Players to dictate.
Who's hired by baseball.
He knows every night yeah.
Okay good about the Yankees -- it.
Roger Clemens is a friend mark.
I've not talked and in some time.
He's one of those people that -- even though -- -- The you always get a Christmas card when we got Roger Clemens in 1999 and we traded David Wells who was somewhat challenging I didn't say great.
Oh great we got I think this is another another major superstar.
This guy -- yankees I never was around a more professional.
Then Roger Clemens he did everything right.
He you know whether you've got twenty viewer requests you're mentioning it a look at what I love the -- and I never saw anybody work harder.
Every Telecom spring training in the morning.
730 players after important.
There -- be that and the field doing their crazy you know show and clutches so I've ever since you know suspect anything.
Why would why would what would what would you -- the motivation to lie.
Why for whom -- for Mac -- for Clinton -- not right now.
I can say I think this is your friend writers saying look if you don't tell us the -- regular jail right.
Why would you not that he can do -- why wouldn't.
It's something I mean I did you know comes.
But I think you -- -- -- Clinton's -- stuff -- -- walked back to the syringes that he knew what was coming.
Is the strength he's very professional strikes me is on the surface a good guy -- I think I think to get a little deeper he's -- a good guy off.
I was I also I -- a little bit and isn't that I've had some dealings with him as a reporter also adds that.
Played a lot of golf last year you know strikes me a channel -- other women he cheated on he was.
Rick -- -- absolutely agree with Rick this is guy who -- all of his dealings with people like me.
Incredibly professional content -- Get a lot of really really good stuff I have to ask myself.
What in the war and whose story do you believe whose story do you believe laughs that's really what -- -- -- -- Thelma Arnold you just have to look -- -- That -- doing it -- -- three.
Better than unitary theory yet either candidate we're happy and I can't make that the index.
You know of whether this is true or or not or.
Some pieces that one thing that Roger keeps.
This is again I love that I really -- I mean -- he asked me for my help.
I would be -- -- appointments.
Injecting extra help I am glad.
Roger keeps saying how do you defend the negative.
Any accusation made it through -- -- negative and people that that there have to be a way to defend.
What he's -- it's not it's just not -- I just tell us all Roger Clinton and we shall put it bluntly and what really.
Average book on.
Is much more of what he's talking about the but.
Name and people that I was -- That's a little different trying to I was in your room I did this so you hear him or not.
I wish you mere reason.
I'm proud anyway yeah.
It is it Nebraska native and possible Derek -- -- -- -- that he did and Mariah Carey for an outline need to do is never had to send that that have been negative.
'cause those negatives didn't exist -- you know that would smoke there's fire and it it Roger Clemens is on fire right now.
Assuming that much but those boring soundbites from from Derek Jeter at the smartest thing he got absolutely -- -- -- you know you know talk plane and all -- him in the top.
-- some top ones that Derek -- Looking dvds that's a polite term -- -- that's mine and never.
Edward yeah it was nice absolutely.
-- -- -- Many many more women or not the Mac that Derek Jeter has -- here's my question.
And all of -- years that not one of the women.
Whether they're famous or not and it has come out of it you know what yeah yeah absolutely it's humbling and -- yeah -- -- you conductors that.
About money apple I think.
Most -- Baseball players that have.
I think at some friends a lot of players.
-- -- -- -- radio show.
That all the man.
That bears you know clean and and they have all these you know.
People accuse them of everything.
Matter is that most normal value.
It it's about that last concert it's about getting that one last -- -- no different -- this man.
Manny Ramirez got its 4902.
Years and then they busted.
This guy in my.
-- I believe was used and in Boston.
He's not a -- in Boston the pat Perez is that they're all trying to get the biggest.
Contact that you get their hands on whether they all come.
And then they don't front loading these -- the people want the -- -- to be successful -- that we've -- vulnerable in -- I don't think that -- Bud -- of -- ought to be so successful Latin strikes.
And that -- -- 98 this nightmare.
And if you bought way to thank us yeah court and that every.
Steroids was the late eighties not 98 and -- use DJ am make money to.
He's -- youth Jose Canseco that you need exists right Gloria ivory six.
And -- partner so I mean if you watch that though wouldn't pumping iron.
-- I mean that's what steroids were out about knowing that use them that.
Postal sport where they thought it.
Pump using weights were hurt us like I mean that was even in the study -- -- -- they'd they'd that if you -- -- that's the biggest indictment baseball old guy like classic sports if you fidelity Scott.
Nobody was the best you know right let popular -- if you look -- Keith Hernandez and he looks -- -- believed that compared -- the guys on the -- -- -- idea that.
We did a story obvious idiots the end in it must have been about nineteen.
In this outside the lines series and it was -- it was about steroids okay -- it was the first real serious examination of the issue and the big.
Question that we tackle was how it's seen.
That those who were cheating we're one step ahead of those who were trying to catch the -- He's he's almost twenty.
The issue has never changed and the reason why I think you're wrong Scott.
Is because I don't think baseball say okay part of life I think it'd probably be.
Maybe that's why I yeah I yeah I never over the -- -- yeah.
-- -- It's really clear this is about athletes.
Do everything they can and to their bodies to be successful.
In this environment.
And make more money and I think they are protected by agents in many cases because they make more money they were protected by.
If you want baseball in nineteen.
-- and said.
This is -- drug.
I think proposal that reporting on the table and the players that -- -- which would never happen.
People here are drug testing program what is the -- you think that you leave baseball was we can't we can't.
Actually what I agree that we yeah.
I don't got -- Connors got youth congress the key Bud Selig and baseball leveraged by embarrassing the union and -- -- -- -- -- to.
Rule I think all I watched that dynamic no selling is you would never got their head kicked -- And they have their own cobwebs -- that time.
So let's let's look at -- hit and it means the ten big -- -- this past generation upon CAA rod.
Supposedly -- people write it out when he's ever felt the test group people well there.
I remember -- Rick Reilly incident where Rick went to him in the capitalize on -- adhere.
No I I think I disagree with that could laugh I.
-- like is that right and several and so those little lights at the company -- look at Sosa then.
And yet Jerry coffee weighed about a buck fifty but the biggest thing lets you know the cro -- and sources that did the cro magnum thing I mean he's you look at it from the white -- and then with the Rangers that are going to -- I guess -- that actually second baseman and we start popping up you can -- outfielder.
But -- his face changed his entire structure changed his and you talk about bonds' hat size getting -- Big East.
Look at the pictures of -- was a different person that would lead -- -- a candidate is an important and bigger yeah.
Bill that would -- which he has doors and it looks at the end -- -- History -- Sosa mobile on was implicated that in fact god and don't really thought I didn't think so that makes me wonder -- David Ortiz is doing.
Yeah evidently this Joe Torre book which I have not -- it -- review.
That he had been able to correct you do that he was doing and essentially he would tell them off the record that I thought there of course Sheffield Juan Gonzales.
Now they say that they have not gotten Frank Thomas.
Jim told me and that -- I looked at that they got that in the.
Now than ever got Jeff Bagwell.
We him you don't want to Biggio and Bagwell in the numbers but.
Insane -- Brady hitters than any on the -- yeah.
The Obama -- that my son is bigger than enemies.
I mean Brady Anderson you -- just.
I just can't believe that you don't believe that baseball turned a blind -- in this case they're still to this -- I think they've done a great job I'll give us.
Then it's working out the drug testing program is working -- as busting everywhere.
After the fact it's pretty land on -- guys that are retired like ninety it too little too that you lose it and edit yeah.
That analysts -- it right over here they have all the signs up to come via the radio -- have become manually.
The TV court and angrily and they don't -- the -- anymore.
Actually pay and many legacies from the rest of the year 700 lives and sees that he's written dot fans all those games you know and in fact incorporate that -- against the -- They had to they had any -- -- -- -- you -- walked away from his team Boston won't addresses the emotional stuff.
The difference between some money from Iraq and you know this guy has kept -- that.
He was caught using a drug that disease cover up you know.
He didn't test positive for an embarrassing -- -- yeah Manny.
He has kept his -- that he had is that where he hasn't denied he hasn't affirmed it.
They went through there you know they're gonna appealed his giant and they would do it.
Based on medical -- Looks like it's gonna send -- suspension and then go back to it.
He can do things in the meantime I think we were talking.
Things you can deal but keeping an -- that nothing he can't.
That's how good that Alex Rodriguez Alex Rodriguez this great lap whatever hires someone one to three names put -- out -- what about -- I don't get this.
Baseball went to their players and said.
Take this test and honestly right just want to get the numbers it's anonymous okay everybody took the test right.
Leaked out Rodriguez's -- We'll put our rails and did so in Iraq and how much the only person that believes if Alex Rodriguez is telling the truth that he only used it in that period I think he's -- -- Right if you read a book little that you -- but there's some fairly damning evidence.
That pattern that -- -- his -- away now of -- from the reliable sources yes look I've read that book and I read that book.
And when I see someone quoted.
Longtime Yankee clubhouse attendant saying that -- had was screwed on straighter something Percival the gentleman that's quoted was a wonderful man.
Was not a Yankee club that and you.
Let the door of the clubhouse that it will -- on before Alex Rodriguez came.
Yeah stars that in -- man was he was a member of the ushers the ticket take.
Forward motion Rick there was one it was good observation with his observation that out for these with a one of the guys that.
What this study toothpaste was screwed up but you don't know if you took those two quotes that are -- there from this you know and I want to -- -- -- -- -- He's always blowing.
Like -- that that yeah.
I've got BS network still I've seen him blow it -- You've got to make -- judgment but if I put this person.
And identify and I think -- -- and you want to have -- -- is that with the Yankees club manager.
Talking about that makes him -- around Baghdad this guy had no contact I've got other than hello goodbye.
I'm gonna go buy your explanation for yet instantly athletes want to make themselves better can we -- feel about this that was me and I felt as though I had no choice but to keep up with the -- -- -- do this stuff.
Now and -- them caught.
If I really want to give it a shot at 36 years old and I was Manny Ramirez.
I would say I will take a blood test every five days as long as -- play here's why did it here's what I did.
And here's how bad I feel.
That's what they don't want I -- the DJ Carrasco and White Sox last night.
Got to win two nights ago and it was much he said that that they don't want as players.
It's been coming in our clubhouse every night and do a blood work in the bathrooms.
And showers and as.
In mass every night and -- about the Clinton is on -- a lot and let it.
That you will never agree to blood tests and that's where we're at right now and other -- It's exciting ridiculous I want I want to buy hourly.
You know that I didn't needed to be six without -- -- Voluntarily go to any place.
A place we go to ourselves before the -- -- it to prove it how to make it all public.
Because that's the only let my -- mariners in July 4.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Now it's back to the question bags by -- not -- is doing it room.
Well that's important Simpson added my thoughts and at the -- and I think -- that level of insecurity.
When you've got these things that I just testing that at this testing for a wide range of things that are used.
It everyday supplements and things like that yet football players you know last year taking -- -- -- both went back.
I think that not supplement and it happens in ingredient that that that's -- -- -- Things are out there think that happen.
Why would you -- -- -- -- -- a problem that.
Knows more explaining just busted in NASCAR driver that -- it and is mired below.
I don't want to talk about let me -- was using.
They died from NASCAR just died last week and suspended for drug use that found dead.
In his trailer they've had last year this guy -- was apparently.
Don't tell me every single spore -- got problems don't really -- performance enhancing it coupled and organic and man does he think that the product of the -- them up -- I just wanted to know who can drive 200 miles an hour on heroin yes.
Yeah liquidity and.
This is a lot of there's.
I think we've now learned that ultimately you are held accountable for you.
Whatever you do however you conduct yourself -- the players are now being held accountable for what they did they might have gotten away with it.
Five years and years when Mark McGwire to set a record ultimately what was it work the second thing and I asleep here to talk about the past chances -- -- we've learned is that long you facilitate the lie.
The work look at Pete rose.
The worse it is and it rose twenty years ago it commands and after all lifetime that I I'm sorry I did this thing nativist it would have been over.
-- it would be a whole thing.
I but I think that way too far I think that is and the but -- probably -- it does should be in the Hall of Fame no questions asked that.
Re going to still religion and -- -- -- in Iraq.
Here's what's at the root of this you had it before.
When you're arguing over 25 million die each year.
People will do anything.
And it gets them through -- specifically we're talking about me when it comes down to me.
It's really really difficult for me -- the evidence is a little bit murky and a lot of these cases but.
You reap what you so this is a guy who hold -- Totally dog and walked away from his teammates so what's my impression of him if you have integrity no chance does he not get.
That's exactly right that's my point my point is if we're gonna talk about -- He doesn't.
Deserved the benefit -- -- out and say this.
That they are so many murky situations and who -- got conclusive evidence it's -- template -- -- -- Five million dollars it makes it gives you all not a right would you say that most dvd 125 million dollars.
That an absence of character and integrity I think that most human beings might think about it twice.
