Clemens And McNamee Agree To Disagree

A New York judge summoned both Roger Clemens and Brian McNamee to court yesterday to try and iron out their differences in a defamation suit brought by McNamee. The former Clemens strength coach told federal prosecutors that he personally injected Clemens with steroids and HGH more than a dozen times from 1998 through 2001—after he left the Red Sox. In 2012, a jury found Clemens not guilty of lying to Congress about steroid use. No agreement was reached. As McNamee's lawyer put it, "I think this is a case where the lines are deeply drawn in the sand. I certainly expect there's going to be a trial in this case." Do these two deserve each other, or what?
