Cashman not ideal gov't witness in Clemens case

WASHINGTON (AP) - No one worked harder than Roger Clemens. He would will himself to win. The New York Yankees traded for him after winning the World Series because they didn't want complacency to set in.

 

Those were all characterizations Thursday by Yankees general manager Brian Cashman - ostensibly a government witness in Clemens' perjury trial. But like former Clemens teammate Andy Pettitte a week before, he sometimes sounded more like a defense witness.

 

Clemens is accused of lying to Congress in 2008 when he denied using steroids or human growth hormone. The key government witness, former Clemens strength coach Brian McNamee, says he injected the standout pitcher with both drugs during the 1998, 2000 and 2001 major league seasons.

 

McNamee is expected to take the stand when testimony resumes on Monday.
