After yesterday's report that a picture had surfaced proving Roger Clemens had attended the 1998 party - which both Clemens and Jose Canseco have absolutely denied - that formed the Clemens/Canseco steroid starting point, things are snowballing for the Clemens legal/P.R. camp.

Hardin's latest statement reverses course. "We know that baseball announcers broadcasting the games at the time said Roger was not at the party. Jose Canseco has said Roger was not at the party, as has Canseco's former wife. Roger was playing golf at the time of the party, and has stated that he may have stopped by the Canseco house after playing golf before heading to the ballpark for the game," the statement said.

Well that's a lot different than this:

"One of the things the committee is going to hear on Wednesday is about this party that is supposed to have started this whole thing," Hardin said. "Roger wasn't even at this party."
