From tonight's "60 Minutes": With 354 wins, Roger Clemens is one of the best pitchers in the history of baseball. There's no question about it. But as Mike Wallace reports, there are questions now about whether Roger Clemens cheated to enhance his record and prolong his career.
At a steroid hearing in March 2005, numerous members of the House Committee on Government Reform, led by Chairman Tom Davis, R-Va., denounced performance-enhancing drugs. They offered three arguments: The drugs are illegal, they're harmful, and they're cheating.
Question: If the best pitchers in MLB like Roger Clemens are using performance-enhancing drugs at the same time that the best hitters in baseball like Mark McGwire and Barry Bonds are using performance-enhancing drugs, how can that really be cheating? Wouldn't the enhanced performance of pitchers exactly cancel out the enhanced performance of hitters, with a net effect of zero?
