Clemens trial: Roger Clemens is trying to prevent his former New York Yankees teammates from telling jurors in his upcoming criminal trial that they got performance-enhancing drugs from Clemens' former trainer. Clemens' attorneys argued in a filing Tuesday that such evidence could create "guilt by association" in juror's minds and asked a judge to block it.
