     Roger Clemens DNA has been linked to blood syringes. Some people are wondering if this is a credible piece of evidence because it was fabricated by Brian McNamee. Scientific tests are being done to try and link the blood in the syringes to Clemens. It seems like this case has been going on forever. Most people don't believe Clemens anyway, so not admitting it will only hurt him. America is a forgiving country. Many fans have forgiven Pete Rose...and many Yankees fans have forgiven Pettitte and Giambi. He should just admit that he took steroids already, but I understand it's not easy.

Scientific tests have linked Roger Clemens's DNA to blood in syringes that a personal trainer says he used to inject the former star pitcher with performance-enhancing drugs, according to two sources familiar with the investigation.

The DNA results, preliminary and subject to verification tests, could prove critical if prosecutors seek an indictment of Clemens on charges he lied about the use of steroids, according to the sources.

-----------------

"It will still be evidence fabricated by McNamee," Hardin said. "I would be dumbfounded if any responsible person ever found this to be reliable or credible evidence in any way."

Clemens voluntarily gave a DNA sample to federal authorities, who are conducting the genetic tests, the sources said.

Still, the DNA results are only part of the equation. Scientists at the Anti-Doping Research Institute in Los Angeles, who were brought onto the case by authorities, are trying to determine whether the syringes ever contained steroids and human growth hormone, the sources said.
