The Real Reason Why Roger Clemens Is On His Way Back To The Majors.

It would be extremely obvious to think that Roger Clemens’ ploy to come back to professional baseball, is to delay his fate in being inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame this winter.  I mean, this is a man with one of the biggest egos Major League Baseball has ever seen.  What do you expect from a seven-time Cy Young Award winner.  Since the Mitchell Report, he has moved heaven and earth to plea for his innocence.  I am not a Clemens fan by any means, but at least he went head up against the federal government and kicked their rear-ends in a court of law!  Like him or not, he was what we were looking for, the only one who kept pleading for his innocence and won.  Now, public opinion thinks HE IS GUILTY AS THEY COME; but you can make your own assumptions!

I get tickled when he says his good name and reputation is now tarnished. Roger, you did that by betraying the Red Sox and making your way to the Yankees, to chase World Series rings, or do you misremember!

Clemens isn’t a darling at all, in fact he is a bully.  Remember Game 2, of the 2000 World Series, when he threw Mike Piazza’s shattered bat back at Piazza?  What in the world was that all about?  Roger thought nothing about it and went on his merry way.  He also hoodwinked his friend, Andy Pettitte, and the sports world by telling the jury, that Andy misremember their conversation.  Pettitte, probably saved Clemens from prison time when he testified in court, as he all of a sudden actually did misremembered!

It’s unbelievable that at age 50, Roger Clemens still commands the attention with his Rocket arm.  I hope the radar gun doesn’t register his pitches in the mid nineties because I will be the first one to say bull(sugar,honey,ice,tea)!  Sugar Land Skeeters is just a tune-up to get back to the majors.  Clemens is a powerful man, and at his age I guess it’s still good to know people in high places.  Who, besides Houston Astros, is going to give Clemens another Major League opportunity?  Lets be honest, the Astros have nothing to play for and bringing Clemens back in a Houston Astros uniform will give the fans a reason to show up to the stadium.  Roger’s motivation for playing professional baseball includes surpassing Jamie Moyer, as the oldest pitcher to win a game in Major League Baseball history. He will also delay the voting of his own Hall of Fame fate another five years. That is rather smart because of the recent accusations of Melky Cabrera and Bartolo Colon suspensions for using PEDs.  Also separating himself from Bonds, Sosa, Palmeiro and McGwire.  The number one reason to come back to Major League Baseball is to pass Greg Maddux as the winningest pitcher in the modern era.

The winningest pitcher in the modern era!

You can’t be the best pitcher in our generation if the soft throwing Maddux has one more victory than you do!  Tell the truth Roger, Greg Maddux’s 355 career wins has to be eating you alive!  Sports world, Roger Clemens is a seven- time Cy Young Award winner, the greatest pitcher in our generation; or do you MISREMEMBER!

    Well his fastball hi 88 MPH, so I guess he still has some Rocket Fuel in his tank. His reasons for coming back may very well be because he is an ego-maniac, but that still doesn’t change the fact at 50, he is throwing gas!!! Steriods oor not this guy was going to the hall of fame. If they did anything at all, they gave him a few more years worth of play.

    People talk badly of MLB for using steriods, has anyone ever thought of testing the NFL??? Jeeeeesus those guys look like pro body builders. No wonder concussions and injuries in the NFL are devistating.

    But its easy to dislike Clemens beacuse he is what we all want. We all want to be young at 50, to be able to still play a kids game, to beat Congress at their own game, to win a World Series ring, to be a YANKEE!!!

    So keep writing about a guy and he will never go away. Remember, theres no such thing as bad publicity.

      First of all I believe he is a HOFer. If you want to turn a blind eye you go right ahead. If you go back to his numbers when he left Boston for Toronto, they are dismal. In 1993 he went 11-14, ’94 he went 9-7 ’95 10-5 and ’96 10-13 which led Boston to believe he was on the slide. In those years he started 110 games winning only 40 of them. That is not a sign of a HOFer. Now when he went to Toronto, he got the fountain of youth. He spent two years there and started 67 games going 41-13. Back to back Cy Youngs! I won’t have you do the math but WOW! His era was 2.05 and 2.65. The first two years his era was 4.60 and 3.70 going 27-13 the first two seasons as a Yanks both years ended in WS champs. His magical year was year 3 in New York when he went 20-3 3.51 era Cy Young. His best year in Houston was 2004 going 18-4, era 2.98 Cy Young followed by his best years in Houston when he posted a 1.87 era in 32 starts but he didn’t have the runs support that year from the Astros, he only posted a 13-8 record. Clemens did what he did. Baseball in my opinion allowed him to play so everything should count. MLB blew it so they should be the ones to suffer, heck all the money MLB made from him pitching, they should be rewarding Clemens. Guilty or not he deserves to be in.

  • Johnny G says:

    I agree. My whole comment was based around the fact that I say he deserves in. Im a Clemens fan! Im a Yankees fan and would take him back in a New York Minute. I think he should go in.

    In 96 the Red Sox finished in 3rd place,and 97 they finished in 4th place, so how much of that contributed to Clemens record? I know Clemens wasnt there in 97, and they were even worse without him. Clemens was 162–73 after leaving Dan Duquette and his horrible Red Sox team. He was on winning teams with the Jays and the Yanks. In an era of guys smashing 73 home runs, if he did enhance his performance, I say it was justified to keep up with the hitters of the era.

    • LeRoy38 says:

      Johnny G, its ok to name the guy that hit 73 homeruns, there is an article about him right of the screen. Those two will forever be link as they were the greatest pitcher/hitter in our era. 162-73 after Boston, proves every point I made in an earlier post. Good teams provide run support. But give Clemens his due, look at his e r a! He was pitching his best ball since ’86. He was washed up at the end of his Red Sox days and the fountain of youth soon after. He was extremely better in every stat when he left Boston and all that while getting older.

    I think Clemens coming back to the majors is a great idea and will provide some much needed interest for baseball who’s popularity is waning.
