Sometimes, the character clause should matter. This is one of those times. Usually, that discussion revolves around their alleged use of performance enhancing drugsan allegation that both deny. This article is not about PED allegations. Earlier this year, Pittsburgh Pirates closer Felipe Vazquez was arrested on charges of sexually assaulting a young girl. The baseball world was appropriately reviled and disgusted, as no person who acts in such a manner belongs on a baseball field.
Nevertheless, it was McCready who was sullied in the press.
Instead, the press wanted to know if Clemens had erectile dysfunction from PED use. McCready was accused of fabricating the allegations to jump-start her career. Clemens, of course, was only too eager to accommodate as McCready was slimed, calling her a liar and denying any romantic relationship ever occurred. He watched from the sidelines as McCready struggled with alcohol and drug addiction until she committed suicide in at just 37 years old.
What Mindy mccready baseball mistress Clemens say about her death? I had heard over time that she was trying to get peace and direction in her life. Why is what Clemens did to McCready essentially forgotten? Is it his denials? He denies using PEDs, too, and yet no one believes him there after he was mentioned 80 times in the Mitchell Report. Is it because he, unlike Vazquez, is white? If you believe that Felipe Vazquez belongs out of baseball - and you should, for his actions were horrific - the same standard should apply to Roger Clemens.
Does a person have the requisite character for the Hall of Fame if they are credibly accused of sexually assaulting a teenager, and then gaslighting her after her suicide? A year-old having a romantic relationship with a year-old is disgusting. Sliming her in the press for it is worse. Gaslighting her after her death with a wink and a nod is beneath contempt. Roger Clemens is not entitled to a place in the Hall of Fame.
This is not a criminal proceeding where he is entitled to a presumption of innocence. This is a question of whether he, as a person, is entitled to an honor based, in part, on his character. The evidence we have suggests his character is not worthy of enshrinement. Mindy McCready was a human being. She deserved better than what we gave her. We should not dishonor her again in death by enshrining her abuser for all time.
