Ex-Red Sox GM who oversaw Clemens' departure mum on report (Jerry Crasnick, 12/15/07,

Dan Duquette was vilified by many after suggesting that star pitcher Roger Clemens was entering the "twilight of his career" when he left the Boston Red Sox in 1996.

But in the wake of Thursday's release of the Mitchell report -- -- which includes nine pages of allegations linking Clemens' to use of performance-enhancing drugs -- Duquette is not taking the opportunity to proclaim himself vindicated.

No GM could have been expected to anticipate that a player would become a 'roid whore.
