Why is Clemens getting NO respect in pre-season rankings?

Pretty nice outing by Clemens, but what was with him batting with only one batting glove? Did he think he was in Augusta or something? :-? :-b

Last year was the first time he had an ERA under 3 in 6 years. It was also the first time he had a WHIP under 1.20 in 5. Don't expect him to repeat last years numbers.

Good point. I think his honeymoon period in Houston is over.

Uhhh I think YODA was being a little sarcastic. Does anyone remember how Clemens finished the season? I'll remind you:

Sept '04
6 GS, 4 W, 0 L, 42.0 IP (7IP average), 12 BB, 46 K, 2.57 ERA, 0.93 WHIP, .182 BAA

;-D ;-D ;-D Does it get any better than that? Oh and his home ERA, WHIP and BAA kills his away for the whole season. Even more evidence that he can succeed @ home?

Yup, I have been targeting him in almost all of my drafts as the #7-8 bestpitcher

the thread died because it deserved to die, there was nothing productive being said...
He began letting Koby Clemens drive the orange Hummer to school after he signed a letter of intent last November to play baseball for the University of Texas, whose colors are burnt orange and white. Before that, Koby drove a black Hummer to school

It's a long season my friend. And there are better teams than Cincinatti out there.

Hmmm... the Rocket has given up exactly 1 run in 4 starts despite getting nicked up all over the place. So when do you start admitting you were wrong? :-b
