Pettite was never overly popular. He was alright but popular is a stretch, especially considering the other players on that team.
Clemens did it to himself, I don't recall them ever being involved with A-Rod but they were/are with Barry. IMO Clemens basically set himself up for when/if he screwed up that he'd get owned because eventhough he was an enormous talent like Bonds he came off as a **** of an individual. What kinda guy throws hardball fastballs at his wife to "practice"?
