YES! I'm so glad he's got his thing back now and I'm pumped because I own him in my best league. I'm wondering, is he on a pitch count today? Because I believe last time he was. I'm def. starting him in his first major league game of the season.

Did they analyze each pitch, pickoff throw, chug of gatorade, and ball scratch on ESPN this time?

Seemed that way, although I didn't pay any attention because I can't stomach their Bonds/Clemens worship.

Besides, is it really any surprise that a first-ballot Hall-of-Famer who had a good chance for Cy Young last year is dominating minor-league hitting?

Actually it is, at his age what he does with a baseball is sick. Minor leage players or not it's still amazing

Yep pretty much, they showed every strike out this time and an interview. I appreciate the coverage and all, but I think it's going a bit over board. It's like ESPN is a bunch of silly soriety girls and Clemens is Brad Pitt ... there is plenty of sports going on right now to spend IMO to much time on a minor league start.

Yes, it is amazing that at his age he can still pitch so well. However, it isn't like he was some washed up vet trying to make a comeback. He was a dominating major league pitcher last season and set a career low ERA. I'd be shocked if he couldn't dominate minor league hitting.

I'm just saying that such detailed coverage of his minor league starts isn't necessary (or newsworthy) on ESPN.

ESPN seems to developing the habit of taking something that is mildly interesting and then BEATING it over the head until you can't stand the topic or the athlete involved. exhibit A: Bonds. Becoming exhibit B: Clemens (although not nearly as bad as their obsessive Bonds coverage. god I'm tired of that)
