Sources: Roger Clemens had 10-year fling with country star Mindy McCready (started when she was 15)
Daily News ^ | 04/28/2008 | Teri Thompson, Nathaniel Vinton

Posted on 04/28/2008 9:27:33 AM PDT by Proud_USA_Republican

Roger Clemens carried on a decade-long affair with country star Mindy McCready, a romance that began when McCready was a 15-year-old aspiring singer performing in a karaoke bar and Clemens was a 28-year-old Red Sox ace and married father of two, several sources have told the Daily News.

The revelations could torpedo claims of an unsullied character that are central to the defamation suit Clemens filed Jan. 6 against his former personal trainer Brian McNamee. Vivid details of the affair could surface in several media projects that McCready is involved with - including a documentary that begins filming today in Nashville, a new album and a reality show.

Maybe they can have a commercial where he calls his wife to ask if he can hook up with a 15 year old, the cellphone call drops, nothing but silence as the wife is yelling at him, and Roger grabs the girl, "Let's get to the hotel room. She's soo happy she's speechless."

I am not sure if Roger could have played this whole situation any worse.

Remember, according to his own testimony before the House committee, Clemens let the trainer inject his wife in the butt with some type of steroid, when he, Clemens, wasn’t there..and later on, when she had an adverse reaction to the shot..didn’t take her to the doc or the ER for a week. Ya think that the wife might have had some inkling..

If these allegations are true, we're talking about Statutory Rape.

Classy.

Clemens is what, 58 now? Presumably the statute of limitations will prevent any charges for statutory rape. How having an extramarital affair proves he took steroids isn’t so clear.

notice how the newspaper plays games.

Relationship is IMPLIED to mean sex.

newspapers all have a horse in this race, they need to protect their yellow journalism.

Now if this woman comes on the stand and says they never had sex between 15-18 and the relationship as platonic, the newspaper itself is screwed. Of course if the woman has a book deal and has to imply sex to make it work then he is screwed.

Hell hath no scandal like a scandal with a book deal.

I don't know how low this can go. What puzzles me is why did he come out swing "how good a person he is" if the closet was full of skeletons. Given this I will give him the benefit of the doubt until more information is available.

Yeah, I know...I was exaggerating a bit. He was born in 1962, so the affair would have been about 1990.

I don’t follow baseball — and I think having Congress investigate this steroid business is inexplicable — so I really don’t know anything about Clemens except what I have seen on the news during the hearings. I am curious to know why you so sure that Clemens is guilty. Sounds like this girl may be less than a credible informant.

Right. I'm sure he was just helping the poor girl with her homework.

The previous comment is joke and not intended to reflect my actual opinion of Clemens. Your mileage may vary.

Don’t forget all those fedex boxes full of cash he’s been sending to her to over the years. He’s been one of the highest paid players in baseball for many years.
I don’t think those were just out of the godness of his heart cause he liked her singing and was a family friend. Sounds like hush money.
I love the story about how he sent her dad a set of golf clubs. “Hey, thanks for letting me use your teen daughter as my mistress. Here are some Callaways.”

If these allegations are true, we're talking about Statutory Rape.

Not necessarily. Laws vary by state. She was 15, some states that's "old enough", althoug I'd think not many. Remember too that she was 15 in 1990, and many states have raised the age since then.

In any event, the statute of limitations likely has expired since 1992 or 93 when she was indeed "old enough" in most any state.

FWIW, in the English common law, and the early days of our Republic, the age was 10 to 12. But most places began raising it in the late 1800s. It still varies by state, and there are often "age difference" exceptions to the general law. For example, in Texas the age is 17, but if someone has sex with a 14 to 16 y/o AND is less than 3 years older, it's a defense to prosecution. In other states it's an exemption in the definition of the crime. Age of Consent

OFf one is contemplating following his example, it might be best to check the links for your state in the above Wiki article.

Who isn't to say she wasn't already a loon when he met her. I mean, he was 28 and she was 15. Sounds like she's had issues for some time. Very unstable personality. Probably why Clemens continued it. Some crazy teenager willing to party with him whenever he wanted to keep it secret from his wife and media.

And if he doesn't want this coming out from her, he's going to have to be sending her a whole lot of fedex packages for many years to come. When a story starts breaking like this, the 7 figure book deals start flying in.

The same, way, doubtless, you arrived by your equally unsubstantiated (at least) decision that he is not: by what we've been presented thus far, in stories such as the one referenced above.

It's an online message board, not an American court of law. There's no "burden of proof" or "innocent until proven guilty," hereabouts; it's all simple, straightforward opinionizing -- no more, no less. You've been here for eight years now, according to your profile; you shouldn't need that explained to you, by this point. Breathe. ;)

This is all hearsay. Clemens is a world-class athlete, a giant amongst men. He has been putting up with this BS his whole career. He stared down that weakling Mike Piazza; chucked a shard of a bat at him, and Piazza couldn’t do anything but sit there and take a load in his pants. That’s a real athlete. We need more of those kinds these days.

Clemens' bat-throwing rage, his bulging neck veins and his proclivity for head-hunting are all likely due to an over abundance of various types of hormones circulating within his system.

He's a walking advertisement for the pharmaceutical industry.

This "giant" gets his X-factor from a bottle.

Making a statement regarding a criminal act would be a losing propostion for a newspaper. (public figure or not)

They can’t say he committed statutory rape with a 15 year old girl so the newspaper implies.

Honestly it is hard to find a good guy in any of this. Slease is on all parties in that mess.

Hope you didn’t hurt any muscles jumping to conclusions on my decisions. I don’t know Clemens from lemons, so I have not made any decision one way or the other.

Based on your grumpy attitude, Kent, I am guessing liberal Seattle is getting to you.

I swear, if I had a nickel for every humorless online dink who still believed that lame "Seattle" gags were genuinely efficacious (or even baseline adequate, for that matter)as comeback zingers, I'd be rich enough to simply buy a state governorship outright, the way they do in places like Maryland. Well, drat, then. ;)

Piazza absolutely OWNED Clemens his whole career, in practically every big situation he faced him Piazza would come up with a game breaking or game winning hit or home run.

Piazza humiliated Clemens on the field of play, even after Clemens hit him in the head INTENTIONALLY because he could never get him out, Clemens is a little nuts. He didn’t care if he killed Piazza all he knew was that he couldn’t get him out.

Clemens the lunatic threw that BAT at Piazza during the World Series because he couldn’t control his temper, the same reason he beaned Piazza in the head, Piazza was rightfully shocked, not dropping a load in his pants. I suppose Piazza should have charged the mound during the World Series and gotten ejected from the World Series to show Clemens he was as big a “man” as Clemens, the “man” who couldn’t get Piazza out in the clutch, threw at him numerous times culminating in hitting him in the head, and then throwing a frigging BAT at Piazza while he wasn’t even looking at him.

Some “man” that Clemens.
