The trial is entering its seventh week. Clemens’ lawyers say they will need seven or eight court days to put on their defense.
In a brushback reminiscent of Roger Clemens the pitcher, U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton had a message for former major leaguer David Segui if he defies a prosecution subpoena to testify in the trial.
The longtime head athletic trainer of the New York Yankees once wrote that Roger Clemens “maintains complete confidence and respect” for strength coach Brian McNamee.
Judge Walton has told the parties if the trial isn’t done by June 8, he might have to recess it for a month because of scheduling conflicts.
The key witness in the Roger Clemens perjury trial testified Monday about three other baseball players who he said took human growth hormone.

U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton said on Friday that each side will have no more than 90 minutes to question each witness, unless the lawyers can make good cases to show that they need an extension.
Brian McNamee, the chief prosecution witness in the Roger Clemens perjury trial, conceded Thursday that he initially lied about his involvement with steroids.
So far, we certainly have not seen the kind of withering cross-examination that was expected by lead defense counsel Rusty Hardin.
Brian McNamee testified Tuesday that he saved medical waste after injecting Roger Clemens with steroids because his wife complained that McNamee was going to be the fall guy.
Brian McNamee says he injected Roger Clemens with steroids about eight to 10 times when they were with the Toronto Blue Jays in 1998.
Like former Roger Clemens teammate Andy Pettitte a week before, Brian Cashman sometimes sounded more like a defense witness.
Injured and defeated in a playoff game against the Boston Red Sox, Roger Clemens asked for the man who could “push his buttons.” He asked for Brian McNamee.
Roger Clemens’ lawyer Rusty Hardin told the judge in the former baseball pitcher’s perjury trial on Wednesday that the defense has additional questions it wants to ask Kirk Radomski when it makes its case to the jurors.
Kirk Radomski, who provided performance-enhancing drugs to dozens of Major League Baseball players, injected some much-needed energy into a plodding prosecution case at Roger Clemens’ perjury trial.
