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.

The news that union organizers are signing up workers at the Los Angeles Times, once a fierce anti-union bastion, is a fascinating footnote to the history of a city once dominated by the paper.
