He used to be bound for the Hall of Fame, but now seems more likely to go to prison. The seven-time Cy Young Award Winner, Roger Clemens was indicted on six counts by a federal grand jury yesterday, for allegedly lying to Congress, with statements like this, "let me be clear, I have never taken steroids or HGH."

He was indicted on six counts including obstruction of justice, and perjury. The Takeaway's sports contributor, Ibrahim Abdul-Matin reflects on whether Clemens' image as an all-time great is sullied forever.
