Gossage feels Clemens lied to Congress

The SportsXchange

Hall of Famer Rich "Goose" Gossage hopes fellow pitcher Roger Clemens doesn't join him in Cooperstown.

The ex-New York Yankees closer told ESPN New York 98.7 on Thursday that he believes Clemens lied about his steroid use, and labeled the seven-time Cy Young Award winner a cheater.

"Are we going to reward these guys for cheating?" Gossage told Michael Kay and Don La Greca. "Even though he was found innocent, it was because of the bad testimony. No one believed (Brian) McNamee and (Andy) Pettitte kind of changed his thing, 'Did I really hear what he told me.'"

Clemens was acquitted Monday on all charges that he lied to Congress when he denied that he used performance-enhancing drugs. The right-hander will appear on the Hall of Fame ballot for the first time this fall.
