  • Piazza says he thinks Clemens used steroids (Video)

    http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/ba...icle-1.1117865

    Yes sir.. Piazza says that he thinks Roger Clemens was on steroids during the bat throwing incident.

    Of course, it's not the Piazza you think - it was wife, Mrs. Alicia Rickter Piazza, who said it.

    Mike Piazza, on the other hand, had nice things to say about Clemens. He says the 2004 All-Star Game, where he caught Clemens, didn't go so well.

    Here's a transcript (Video in link above):

    At least one Piazza thinks that Roger Clemens was on something other than an adrenaline rush when he whipped a bat shard at Mets catcher Mike Piazza during Game 2 of the 2000 World Series.

    In a video posted on TMZ, Piazza and his wife — former Playboy Playmate Alicia Rickter — are interviewed by a TMZ reporter coming out of a Santa Monica, Calif. restaurant, Giorgio Baldi, Wednesday night, and Mrs. Piazza does not shy away from tossing some high heat at her husband’s former nemesis.

    “Does (Piazza) think that Roger Clemens was on ‘roids when he broke that bat?” Rickter asks, repeating the question. “Yes! He does think that.” When the camera operator asks, “Who does?” Rickter points to her husband and blurts, “He does!” Piazza stands to the left and has a sheepish smile while his wife detonates on the Rocket.

    “I do. I do. I do,” Rickter continues, shifting gears after the interviewer tells Piazza his wife is getting him in trouble.

    Later in the video, Piazza tries to make amends, calling Clemens a “great pitcher” when asked whether Clemens’ reputation and career are tarnished. The seven-time Cy Young Award-winning pitcher was acquitted of all perjury charges last month in federal court, after being charged with lying about his use of performance-enhancing drugs.

    “The only time I’ve ever known him is hitting against him,” says Piazza. “It’s really tough for me to say, ‘cause I never played with him, just against him. I mean, look, he was a great pitcher. His record speaks for itself.”
    Piazza got beaned by Clemens during the 2000 regular season and then had the infamous confrontation during the Subway Series. Piazza does lament one baseball moment he shared with Clemens — when the two were National League All-Star battery mates in 2004.

    “It didn’t go too well,” Piazza says in the video, referring to the experience. Clemens gave up six runs in the first inning. “He was frustrated. We had a tough night. From a professional standpoint, I wish he did well. It’s professional pride. But what are you going to do?”

    Dan Lozano, Piazza’s agent, declined comment to the Daily News.

      Piazza's wife is wrong.

      Only Debbie Clemens ever used performance enhancing drugs. Roger just used Icy Hot.

        I am surprised she would want to enter the fray knowing that.

              I doubt she would answer my post, but perhaps another member of this board would respond to me to back up his allegations.

                And in other breaking news it was revealed for the first time today that Mount Everest is a tall mountain, and the Mississippi is a pretty big river! Everybody was real surprised!

                    I heard some crazy stuff about a several hour period of darkness followed by a brilliant yellow ball appearing over the horizon just before breakfast time!

                      Well, in his defense, he needed more testosterone. It worked, he's married to a woman.

                        blackout's word is as good as hers. She's not exactly an unbiased observer, though.

                          But I can ask blackout what he's basing it on, I can't ask her.

                              So was Rock Hudson. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
