Pitcher's attorney says LAT wrong

The lawyer for steroid-using pitcher Jason Grimsley goes further than prosecutors in challenging the accuracy of an L.A. Times story that reported Roger Clemens was named as a user of performance-enhancing chemicals. The Times had reported, based on unnamed sources, that Grimsley had fingered Clemens and four other players in an affidavit. But his attorney says, "Jason told them [the federal agents] he had no knowledge of Clemens and Pettitte using any illegal drugs and told them that never in a million years would either of them use." Yesterday the U.S. Attorney in San Francisco said that the Times story contained inaccuracies, but he wouldn't elaborate.
