Damon denies steroid rumors

Johnny Damon has made a pre-emptive strike against rumors currently swirling, denying reports that he is to be suspended today for steroid use.

According to the story, suspensions of Damon and Roger Clemens for violating the league's steroid policy have been rumored to be announced today, but Damon adamantly denied ever using steroids, while Red Sox G.M. Theo Epstein, while not overtly denying the story, called the frenzy around the steroids situation a "witch-hunt".
