The long-awaited report from former Sen. George Mitchell claimed performance-enhancing drug use has been pervasive in Major League Baseball for more than a decade. "It's hard for me to grasp all of this that's being accused and being thrown out there,” Murcer said. "It's hard to come up with something logical to say other than this is a big implication as far as baseball is concerned. "But they haven't proved anything on anybody, and I can't hardly comment on allegations. I'm an assumption guy, especially when they're talking about serious things like they're talking about.” They were talking Thursday about Roger Clemens and Andy Pettitte, two pitchers Murcer has known for a long time, as part of the New York Yankees broadcast crew. "Roger or Andy, either one, have never been accused of taking illegal drugs,” Murcer said. "I mean, they never tested positive for any of that. "It's all going on a guy who was their trainer, whose testimony has proved them guilty. I think I have to have a little bit more than that.” The trainer Murcer mentioned is Brian McNamee, former Yankees strength and conditioning coach. "I saw him around the clubhouse and working out with Andy and Roger, but I didn't know him at all,” Murcer said.
