Why one would believe Mitchell over Clemens, I do not know. Does one have a more demonstrable history of credibility? I don't believe so. I do know that the people talking to Mitchell ratted to get immunity and I do believe that history is replete with examples of people fabricating out of whole clothe stories to get themselves out of trouble. I prefer to believe Clemens until proof has been provided otherwise.
As to Mithcell this will become a deserved blotch on his career.
