(From Newsday's Ken Davidoff): "Andy Pettitte is said by friends to be upset with Roger Clemens because of Clemens' aggressive
defense to the charges leveled against him in the Mitchell Report. Most of all, Pettitte didn't care for Clemens' public airing of his taped phone call with accuser Brian McNamee, which accomplished little.
"They were never as close as they were made out to be," a friend of both said on the condition of anonymity. "They just sort of went along with it in the media, because it was a good story.""....
P.S. Clemens joining the Astros with Pettitte the first time was what I hoped for from the second Pettitte was kicked out of the Yankees. Anyone would've made that move who had an ounce of respect or affection for Andy. Aside from it making sense for Clemens in other ways, Steinbrenner and Cashman needed to be put in their place for how badly they treated a home grown lifelong Yankee. Move along.
