I haven't follow this closely, but Pettite's testimony that Clemens admitted to him that he'd used HGH seems pretty damning. Clemens' explanation is that Pettite "misheard" him? Pretty weak.
Full disclosure: even before this stuff broke I considered Clemens to be an ass, so I'm probably predisclosed to disbelieve him.
