Roger Clemens returns to baseball, but HGH isn't gone totally. How ironic pus some sad farewells
after being found not guilty whatever you believe in his trial for HGH
recently, Roger Clemens has decided to come back to baseball not as a coach or
player just yet, but as a 50 year old pitcher.
someone with Roger Clemens ego and talent. No it’s not the major leagues just
yet, but that might not be far behind. Clemens has signed with the Sugarland
Skeeters, an independent minor leaqgue baeball team in the Atlantic League. And
Clemens is slated to have his first start Saturday at home vs Bridgeport.
we’ll see what happens and will Roger Clemens end up back in the major leagues
possibly with the Houston Astros who he pitched for from 2004-2006. I saw him
pitch in a game vs the Brewers in Houston in 2006. Clemens pitched 7 scoreless
innings in a game the Astros won 1-0. Rocket Man, by Elton John his theme song,
blared over the intercom. He last
pitched in the majors in a second stint with the Yankees in 2007. Clemens has
over 350 victories and you wonder why he wants to pitch again.
Hall of Fame Induction would come up next summer, but that is clouded by his
HGH controversy. And if he does pitch in the majors that would delay that vote
another 5 years. Shrwed move by him, but it’s hard to see when the Barry Bonds,
Mark McGuire, Sammy Sosa, Rafael Palmeiro and Clemens Steroids and HGH group
will get in the Hall of Fame. I’m sure they’ll all get in before Pete Rose who
on Wednesday Oakland A’s pitcher Bartolo Colon was suspended 50 games for HGH use
a week after the SF Giants Melky Cabrera
was suspended 50 games for the same thing. So the HGH problem isn’t going away
a couple sad notes. Our hearts and prayers go out to Elizabeth “Sportsblogger”
Chapman who’s father in law passed away this morning. Our thoughts are with you
Beth and your family in this tough time.
And I saw word on the Internet this morning
that Roger Moore, the second full time James Bond after Sean Connery was
apparently killed in a snowboarding accident in Switzerland today.
was the first James Bond that I remember seeing in movies in the 1970s growing
up in films like Live and Let Die, For Your Eyes Only, Octupussey, Mooonraker
and A View to a Kill his final James Bond movie in 1985. I am saddened to hear
of Roger Moore’s tragic passing. RIP to both men who died.
wishes, take care and talk soon. Bratman
