Roger Clemens (can you say "eight-time Cy Young winner")

ESPN article.

I think a lot of the voters were wanting to be able to vote for Clemens - with him being 43, having an incredibly low ERA and still having a good record even with the extreme lack of run support he gets - and I think they now have that little push to do just that. My sympathy and prayers go out to him and his family.

    Even as a die-hard Yankees fan, I have always liked the Rocket (is that possible?). I've even had one of his Rookie cards for forever.

    I hate to hear that about his mother as well... My thoughts are with him and his family.

    I know what you mean. As a die-hard Yanks fan I'm also an ENORMOUS Clemens fan. No telling how many baseball cards of his I have, including some of his rookie cards. I remember watching him in the '86 World Series pitching against the Mets and since then I've been a fan. Even heading down to Houston at the end of this month to see him pitch at Minute Maid against the Cubs. It would have killed me last year (and maybe this year) if Houston and New York end up in the World Series.

    LOL, I hear that. It would be a good Series! I've only been to one MLB game - Yanks @ Orioles back in 95 I believe. It was great. Enjoy the game!!
