Grimsley's List Revealed

Well, it took a few months, but the names on Jason Grimsley’s list of purported performance-enhancing drug users has finally been revealed. A New York Times article lists two former Yankees – Roger Clemens and Andy Pettitte – and three Orioles: Miguel Tejada, Brian Roberts and Jay Gibbons.

From the article:

Roger Clemens calls the report ''dangerous and malicious and reckless.'' Andy Pettitte insists he never took banned drugs. Miguel Tejada says he is being smeared again by scandal.

Some of baseball's biggest stars responded with denials and denunciations Sunday following a Los Angeles Times report in which former pitcher Jason Grimsley accused five players of using performance-enhancing drugs, according to a federal agent's affidavit. The other players cited were Baltimore teammates Brian Roberts and Jay Gibbons.

Grimsley once played with Clemens and Pettitte on the New York Yankees and is now out of baseball. The reliever has admitted using a variety of banned substances and was suspended for 50 games by Major League Baseball.

Clemens and Pettitte, now teammates on the Houston Astros, denied the allegations Sunday.

''I just think it's incredibly dangerous to sit out there and just throw names out there,'' Clemens said Sunday before the Astros played in Atlanta on the final day of the regular season. ''I haven't seen (the report), nor do I need to see it.''

Back on June 20 I flagged Clemens, Pettitte and Tejada as possible names on Grimsley’s list, though admittedly I flagged a whole lot of people. :D
