St. Louis congressman William Lacy Clay, who was at the infamous 2005 House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing, released a statement today saying the case is closed when it comes to Mark McGwire and his steroid use:
I spoke with Cardinals management today and they briefed me on Mark McGwire's admission. I'm glad he finally told the truth and has taken personal responsibility for his mistakes. He owes that to the Cardinals and to baseball fans everywhere. From my perspective, the issue is now closed and we move on. I wish him well in his return to the dugout as the Cardinal's new batting coach.
