Roger Clemens is out of baseball and involved in a steroids controversy, but he still has influence with the New York Yankees, the team he pitched for last season.
Yankees pitcher Joba Chamberlain, who is making the transition from eighth-inning reliever to the rotation, says he is in touch with Clemens regularly.
"We text back and forth and I ask him a lot of questions, because that's how you get better," Chamberlain said before the Yankees' game in Baltimore Tuesday night. "You can't be afraid to ask questions. I ask him everything from workout questions to how to pitch to certain batters. I never thought I'd be texting Roger Clemens."
