Another Nail In The Coffin: Clemens Linked to Jon Daley's Ex

Scott ThornCorrespondent IMay 1, 2008

Maybe karma has finally caught up with Roger Clemens.

Still reeling from the report of his decade-long relationship with country singer Mindy McCready, Clemens' reputation took another hit yesterday.

The former pitcher is now being linked to one of Jon Daley's ex-wives, Paulette Dean Daley. The two met in Palm Springs, California at the Bob Hope Chrysler Classic and have reportedly spent time their together.   

Clemens arranged multiple trips for her to attend Yankee games at Anaheim Stadium in order to watch him pitch; and there have also been reports that he gave her financial support.

Like Mindy, Paulette isn't denying anything: "I know Roger. I consider him a good friend. That's all I'm comfortable saying."

Not only will this further hurt Clemens' reputation, but it could have legal implications in his lawsuit against Brian McNamee. All told, this is the third woman he has been linked to, which will almost certainly sully his image in the eyes of a jury.

The Rocket's fall from grace has been hard and fast. The scary part is, it might not be done yet.
