Clemens to be Lambasted in Book

The NY Daily News' I-team (their 60 Minutes way of saying investigators Teri Thompson, Nathaniel Vinton, Michael O’Keeffe and Christian Red) have put together an expose on Roger Clemens entitled, "American Icon: The Fall of Roger Clemens and the Rise of Steroids in America's Pasttime".

The book is based on thousands of pages of court documents, congressional depositions, police reports, medical files and transcripts of secretly recorded phone calls. They interviewed baseball players and executives, union officials, congressional members and staffers, law enforcement agents, attorneys, agents, steroid suppliers, trainers, doctors and doping experts. The team’s original reporting for the Daily News won The Associated Press Sports Editors award for Best Investigative Reporting in 2008.
Today's edition of the paper has excerpts about the Clemens' SI photo shoot, Brian McNamee injecting Debbie Clemens with HGH, Roger's infidelity, and the anti-defamation suit which brought damaging character flaws to the public's attention.

Do we really need to know all this?
