Brian McNamee has a lot of credibility problems, but having Segui back up McNamee’s story about why he kept old syringes is pretty significant in my view as it gives the jury an alternate, more Occam’s Razor-friendly explanation for why he would have kept them than the “this is all an elaborate fabrication” story that Clemens’ lawyers are suggesting.
