    Sources: Roger Clemens had 10-year fling with country star Mindy McCready
    By TERI THOMPSON and NATHANIEL VINTON in New York and CHRISTIAN RED in Nashville
    DAILY NEWS SPORTS WRITERS

    Updated Monday, April 28th 2008, 12:03 AM


    Roger Clemens carried on a decade-long affair with country star Mindy McCready, a romance that began when McCready was a 15-year-old aspiring singer performing in a karaoke bar and Clemens was a 28-year-old Red Sox ace and married father of two, several sources have told the Daily News.

    The revelations could torpedo claims of an unsullied character that are central to the defamation suit Clemens filed Jan. 6 against his former personal trainer Brian McNamee. Vivid details of the affair could surface in several media projects that McCready is involved with - including a documentary that begins filming today in Nashville, a new album and a reality show.

    McCready, who lives on a quiet, tree-lined street in Nashville, is attempting a career comeback following a string of legal and personal woes.

    Contacted by the Daily News Sunday through his lawyer Rusty Hardin, Clemens confirmed a long-term relationship but denied that it was of a sexual nature.

    "He flatly denies having had any kind of an inappropriate relationship with her," Hardin said. "He's considered her a close family friend. ... He has never had a sexual relationship with her."

    Hardin said the Rocket's wife, Debbie, knew McCready and that the singer had traveled on his plane.

    From a public relations standpoint, Clemens' decision to file the suit against McNamee the night the Rocket appeared with Mike Wallace on "60 Minutes" could end up being the biggest risk he has taken yet. Clemens, under investigation for perjury, has already endured the ignominy of publicly admitting his wife's own human growth hormone use, having photos of bloody gauze and needles linked to him and embarrassing scrutiny of an alleged injection-site abscess on his buttocks.

    'Anything is fair game'

    The romantic link to McCready, which spanned his stints with the Red Sox, Blue Jays, Yankees and Astros, could emerge as a trump card for McNamee's legal team.

    "The issue in Roger's suit against McNamee is Roger's reputation and how it has been damaged," said Richard Emery, one of McNamee's lawyers who is handling the defamation suit. "If it's proved that he's a philanderer, his reputation is already damaged. When you sue for defamation, you put your whole reputation in the community at issue. Anything is fair game, including his claim of sanctimonious purity. We would cross-examine him and other witnesses who might impact on his alleged behavior. We would probably subpoena her and witnesses who knew [of the relationship]. He's a 'family man' - he implies that. It's about what his damages are. All is fair game."

    Dear God, KBF here. I'd just like to say thanks, once again, for allowing Dusty Baker and I to live during the same time period. Every time I think he's given me his last gift -- overpitching Prior in the playoffs, getting cocky in Game 6 vs. the Angels, blowing another game for the Cubs -- he does something stupid like pitching to Albert Pujols. Thy will be done, baby!!!!!

    If this is true - if anything happened between the time she was 15 and the day she turned 18 - wow. That'd be big.

      Apparently, Miss McKready scratched her mommas' face last year...

      And is there anything more hollow these days than a denial by Roger Clemens?
      “I’ve always stated, ‘I’m a Missouri Tiger,’” Anderson said March 13 after Arkansas fired John Pelphrey, adding, “I’m excited about what’s taking place here.”

      Asked then if he would talk to his players about the situation, he said, “They know me, and that’s where the trust comes in.

                They say with today's medical advances that "forty is the new thirty". Maybe Roger was thinking that 15 is the new 21.

                      She was very hot back in the day. Very LTOH worthy. I was searching online for the promotional calendar she did. Ticked a lot of nashville folks off.

                      Dean Cain and a few athletes pretty much ruined her life.
