Excellent point. Forgot all about the WBC angle.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

That's funny, I heard clemens was dealing with some Tax issues, and now that they are in order he's ready to pitch again. :-b

i don't think steroids is the reason he delayed, but i wouldnt be suprised if clemens had or was taking them. he has that puffed up look everyone rags on bonds for. personally i like the rocket but it wouldnt suprise me if he was juicin'. don't think thats a main reason for the delay though.

Weird, I heard it was because he was to busy banging Paris Hilton and doing blow off stripper's tits. In fact, I heard the whole WBC was just a way for Bud Selig to cover for a huge multi-national orgy Roger was sponsoring.... ;-7

He got to skip training camp, skip playing in the cold weather of April and May and save his arm for the end of the season. Not to mention he still gets about $12M.

Works for me. ;-D

I heard a rumor that he already tested positive for roids. Thats why he sat out. It didnt hit the papers because it would be bad for baseball... But its just a stupid rumor. If something like that happened, it would have leaked.

I'm calling in sick tomorrow and using the Paris Hilton Orgy conspiracy. Just send me a bill on what I owe you for the world class excuse for not working. I love it.

A Kansas City Talkshow host brought this up yesterday, May 31st. He said, "Isn't it interesting that Clemens takes off half a season the year they start testing for steroids?! Is it to cleanse his system so nothing is detected?! Is it because he had to completely change his training regiment because he could no longer rely on the roids?! I mean, I've long wondered if he was on the juice...but this may push me over the top!"


hummmmmmmmmm... :-o


The fact that this is even plausible makes you realize just how tainted a sport baseball really is...or was. Maybe we should just replay the "Steroid Years" to get the true numbers out.

no one can prove it BUT that incident in the playoffs vs the As when he was w/the redsox and he exploded at the home plate umpire was a classic roids rage moment complete w/the acne and the puffiness...the guy was definitely on something..when is the last time you saw a ML pitcher using a mouth piece like some NFL lineman ?!
