Holy shit. If this news story is to be believed, which means that Brian McNamee’s attorney is to be believed, then when Andy Pettitte appears before Congress, he’s going to have something really interesting to say.
Like that he and Roger Clemens discussed using HGH. Like that the discussion was at Clemens’s house. That following this discussion Pettitte then discussed HGH with McNamee, who advised Pettitte not to use HGH. Like that Pettitte and McNamee talked about Clemens’s HGH use.
Now Pettitte’s attorney was contacted about this, and the attorney refused to comment on anything that Pettitte will be telling Congress. So this could all be a gigantic bluff of some kind. Or this could be the end for Brian McNamee. Or this could be the fallout from Clemens pissing off Pettitte.
Also of possible interest is that Jim Murray, the agent referenced in the Clemens-McNamee phone conversation, has lawyered up and been asked to meet with Congressional investigators.
