Roger Clemens has mostly kept his thoughts about his Hall Of Fame candidacy quiet, but some comments from an ex-teammate prompted him to put an end to that silence.
Clemens didn’t get inducted into the Hall Of Fame on Wednesday, much to the delight of former pitcher Roy Halladay who said there’s no place in the Hall for PED users like Clemens or Barry Bonds.
When you use PEDs you admit your not good enough to compete fairly! Our nations past time should have higher standards! No Clemens no Bonds!

Clemens, who briefly was on the Toronto Blue Jays with Halladay in 1998, didn’t hold back with his response.

Halladay has never been accused of using any sort of PED, including amphetamines, until Clemens fired back with this statement. It’ll be interesting to see if and how Halladay replies to such an accusation.
