Smoltz Gets the Idea: 'Just Give Me a Lie Detector Test'

"Some people have some explaining to do, and as far as he [Clemens] goes, it's been pretty... it wasn't like a few times, it was in there a lot. So, I think people personally...want to hear from him. I don' think they want to hear from the attorney. I don't think they want to hear from representatives. They want to hear from him. If I was on that report, and it was not even close to legit, I'd come out swinging. I'd do whatever it took. I'd sue. I'd do whatever it takes. You can't argue with the names if they're not going to come out and fight it. I don't know whose legal advice people were receiving back in Congress [during the steroid hearings in March 2005], I don't know what they're listening to now. I don't know the ramifications. I can tell you this, they may tell me 'hey, you can't win,' I don't care. I don't care. It would be very easy. Just give me a lie detector test."-- John Smoltz, 19 years with the Atlanta Braves, in a 12.17.07 interview on the Jim Rome radio show
