"ROGER CLEMENS AND ANDY PETTITTE ARE THICK-BODIED STARTING PITCHERS"..."-NY Times, KEPNER
Clemens and Pettitte are "THICK-BODIED?" So you're selling they're physically similar so therefore..... Right. The two have never had similar physiques, but the NY Times is the most important newspaper in the world, so they say what they want.
BY THE WAY, ANDY PETTITTE IS NOT UNDER INVESTIGATION FOR ANYTHING, NY TIMES, BE IT 'OFF SEASON WORKOUTS' OR ANYTHING ELSE AS MUCH AS YOU TRY TO MAKE IT APPEAR OTHERWISE IN ARTICLES LIKE THIS. WHATEVER ANDY WAS ACCUSED OF HE'S ALREADY ADMITTED. THERE'S NOTHING LEFT TO TALK ABOUT WITH PETTITTE. UNLESS YOU SEEK FAME AND FORTUNE, THEN ARTICLES LIKE THIS WILL HELP YOU A GREAT DEAL.
THE NY TIMES HAS BEEN EXQUISITELY SELECTIVE IN THEIR STORIES ABOUT THE HGH SCANDALS (WHICH THEY REFER TO AS THE STEROIDS SCANDALS). ON THE OTHER HAND, IT'S EASY TO WRITE GARBAGE TO DEFAME ANDY PETTITTE--NO ONE COMPLAINS, FANS DON'T CARE, THE YANKEES ARE OBLIVIOUS, AND WHOEVER REPRESENTS PETTITTE IS OUT TO LUNCH.
