It is simply bizarre that McNamee would have saved such items for seven years; I am sure there will be considerable speculation as to his motives. But the evidence could increase McNamee’s credibility if the physical evidence is consistent with his allegations of steroid use and growth hormone by Clemens. explains how the physical evidence would support the allegations:
DNA matching could prove the Clemens connection. When an injection is performed a small amount the the recipient’s blood is back-washed into the syringe. That would allow DNA testing to verify Rocket-DNA; forensic analysis could also identify anabolic steroids.
While the physical evidence couldMcNamee’s statements, legal experts whether the is admissible in court and the likelihood that such evidence would successfully be discredited by defense attorneys.
I also found it somewhat bizarre as well that the New York Times tried to suggest a similarity between the bloody syringe and Roger Clemens with the controversial retroactive testing of Lance Armstrong’s urine sample a few years ago:
The newest development in the Clemens case is similar to an issue that cyclist Lance Armstrong, long under suspicion of using performance-enhancing drugs, confronted in 2006. In that instance, the International Cycling Union discounted a reported link between Armstrong and the banned substance EPO because they concluded that testers had not followed proper procedures in retroactively testing Armstrong’s 1999 urine samples five years later.
