WASHINGTON — Brian McNamee conceded that the first time Roger Clemens asked for help with a "booty shot," the pitcher did not specifically use the word "steroids."
Under cross-examination from Clemens' lawyer, McNamee said that he assumed Clemens was referring to steroids when asking for the shot while pitching for the Toronto Blue Jays in 1998. McNamee said he was under the impression Clemens was already doing steroids.
Hardin asked McNamee why he didn't ask Clemens what he meant.
"Because I knew what he meant," McNamee said, adding, "He got what he wanted."
JAYS' LAWRIE SUSPENDED 4 GAMES: Brett Lawrie heard the penalty, then expressed just one regret about his tantrum: that his batting helmet bounced up and hit an umpire.
Major League Baseball suspended Lawrie for four games and fined him an undisclosed amount Wednesday, a day after the Toronto third baseman got into an altercation with umpire Bill Miller.
Lawrie appealed and can play until there is a hearing.
HICKEY DEAD AT 56: Kevin Hickey, who pitched in six major league seasons with the White Sox and the Baltimore Orioles before taking a coaching job with Chicago, has died. He was 56.
The team said Hickey died Wednesday at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago. He had been in intensive care following his transfer from a Dallas hospital last month after missing the team's workout before Opening Day.
