Roger Clemens's Stash

FEBRUARY 7--Lawyers for Brian McNamee, the trainer who has accused ex-client Roger Clemens of using performance-enhancing drugs, today released photos purporting to show syringes, blood-specked gauze pads, and drug vials used by the embattled baseball star.

The photos can be found on the following two pages (it is unclear what the significance is of the Miller Lite can seen in this image).

McNamee's lawyers have said that the items were turned over last month to federal investigators who have been probing the widespread use and distribution of illegal substances by professional athletes.

McNamee has previously charged that he injected Clemens with steroids and human growth hormone on about 16 occasions between 1998 and 2001. He reportedly kept the used vials, syringes, and gauze as some kind of insurance policy were he to get caught distributing the drugs. (2 pages)
