ROGER CLEMANS IS A YANKEE

Someone in my league just dropped him yesterday, but I've got the 12th waiver spot in a 12 team league. Dropped Randy Johnson for the Rocket just in case it clears!

I was at The Stadium today and when they made the announcement (during the 7th inning inning stretch) it was incredible - the place went nuts ;-D

He was drafted in 3 of the 4 leagues I'm in. He was on the WW on the 4th, and I got him a couple of hours ago. Dropped Freddie Sanchez since I got Polanco and Upton for 2nd base.

He may not be great, but he'll be better than some of my other pitchers.

Look at his numbers from last season. I have five SP with much better numbers. From a fantasy standpoint, he's tier two.

I'm a Braves fan. I don't give a crap who he signs with, although I have little respect for any team that would concede to a player, any player, the demands he makes.

Actually, I'm a baseball fan, and I just can't help but think of how the game used to be played. How do you think a player demanding his own private transportation and the right to not stay with the team when he isn't actually pitching would have gone over with Mickey Mantle, Joe Dimaggio and the other players from those years when the Yankee truly were a team to be proud of?

I view him as a tier 2 SP because he's gonna be 45 in August.
In light of that, Tier 2 may be too high...
I agree with the previous poster, I'm sick of his prima donna ways. If you want to play ball, go to Spring Training, travel with the team and play the whole season. Either that or hang 'em up.

As for the Sox, they could have probably staged a bidding war and may have been able to get him. I'm glad they didn't, they don't need him.

Put things in perspective: Watch "When It Was A Game." Then consider how Rogers Clemens has handled himself for the last two seasons.

It's a damn shame...

I just don't see him lighting it up like some people seem to think. He's going from the NL to the AL east, he'll be pitching 5-6 innings (where that vaunted Yankee pen will take over) and he's not starting until the second week of June. Oh yeah- and being 45 doesn't help either. What's he giving you? Not alot of innings, probably lose a few wins to the Yanks pen, and less starts. I dunno- I say pick him up, watch him light it up against NL teams for his first few starts, and sell high.

He won't be the Rocket of old, but he will be solid.

As for the players, he will be welcomed because they need pitching, bad. Giambi said he would carry his bags to the car if needed. Doesn't sound like there's any bad vibes going on. Check out what Brad Ausmus, Houston's catcher had to say, " I wish he were coming here."

I think some of you have sour grapes for some reason. Don't know, just a guesss.

Who cares? This is fantasy baseball, not a personality contest. Bottom line is the guy gives nice stats.
