Paulette Dean Daly, latest Rocket launcher? For Roger Clemens, the hits just seem to keep on coming. Clemens' lawyer, Rusty Hardin,
Just to make it interesting, he now will have a new report to comment on.
Several sources told the Daily News on Wednesday that Clemens, a married father of four, had a relationship with Paulette Dean Daly, a former wife of champion golfer John Daly.
The sources said that Clemens arranged trips to Anaheim Stadium for Daly - the latest woman who emerges as an alleged Rocket conquest - to watch him pitch for the Yankees against the Angels.
According to the same sources, he also spent time with her in Palm Springs, Calif.
"Yeah, I've known Roger quite a while and we are friends," Daly said yesterday.
According to the Daily News, she declined to elaborate on the nature of her relationship with the pitcher, but did not deny allegations from several sources that it was romantic and included financial support.
The Daily News said the revelation of the alleged affair could have an effect on Clemens' ongoing battle against steroid allegations. Clemens has sued former trainer Brian McNamee for defamation of character.
The issue in Roger's suit against McNamee is Roger's reputation and how it has been damaged, Richard Emery, one of McNamee's attorneys told the Daily News. If it's proved that he is a philanderer, his reputation is already damaged.
McNamee's lawyers have said they will pursue sworn testimony from any mistresses who emerge, including testimony from country singer Mindy McCready, who on Monday confirmed the details of a Daily News exclusive story describing her long-term affair with Clemens.
