    WASHINGTON — Roger Clemens has been acquitted on all charges by a jury that decided he didn’t lie to Congress when he denied using performance-enhancing drugs.

    Jurors returned their verdict Monday after close to 10 hours of deliberation. The outcome brings an end to a 10-week trial that capped an expensive, five-year investigation into one of the greatest pitchers in the history of baseball.

    Does that mean he won't have an asterisk (*) by his name?

    I'm glad he is walking free. This thing was just wrong all the way around to me.

    I agree. I just felt for him and his family. You could see the fear in his eyes.

    Brian McNamee, Roger Clemens' chief accuser was a bigger liar then Clemens so Roger gets a pass. Clemens had the best lawyer money could buy

    That's what Clemens lawyer was waiting on, McNamee to be caught in a lie...Then he could discredit him.....I don't doubt Clemens did HGH, but knowing it isn't the burden of proof...Like Jeff said, if he did it, he's only hurting himself..Baseball has taken worse hits, and survived...So he didn't shame baseball at all..

    Let the Rocket retire in peace. We have much more important things to tend to.

    Pete Rose, as a player, should be in the hall.

    He should be in the Hall as a player and banned from ever coaching again. There's a compromise.
