Also on May 11, Vinton spoke about the book on the ESPN program First Take.

"We take you deep inside this drama that happened," says Vinton.

"This was as swift as a downfall could be. In 77 days, Roger went from a shoo-in for Cooperstown to a target of a Justice Department investigation."

In the interview Vinton also responds to Clemens' comments about the book, which he co-wrote with with fellow New York Daily News investigative reporters Teri Thompson, Michael O'Keeffe and Christian Red.

The team's original reporting for the Daily News won the Associated Press Sports Editors award for Best Investigative Reporting in 2008.
