I sure would like to know what the "training regime" of Roger Clemens was.

He's not high profile, but the Sun-Times ran a nice story a few years ago on Jim Parque admitting he used steroids. He was quoted saying he had a family and his fastball couldn't break a pane of glass so he would do anything just to keep a big league job and salary.

I'm sure a lot of the fringe players in MLB in that era used just to keep their jobs, not to set or break any records.
