Roger Clemens has sued his former trainer for defamation in an attempt to regain his Hall of Fame reputation. The WSJ Law Blog has a great story on the lawsuit.
The interesting question will be whether the trainer will file a counterclaim for defamation. Why not? McNamee now has to protect his reputation and Clemens has the deeper pockets. At this point McNamee won’t have anything to lose either. Public opinion for baseball players after the Mitchell Report is perhaps only a little higher than the public’s views of lawyers.
See my thoughts on the Mitchell Report here.
