Mike Stanton

Clemens...that is a good point. Every seems to be putting him in the Yankee category, but his best years were in Boston and one of the little blurbs I read said that he had used in 1998 and before. Clemens is a prominent member of both franchises, and will be the sole guy to really stir up baseball.

The earliest reports I've read was 1998 when he was with Toronto and obviously he hasn't played with the Red Sox since then, just the Yankees and the Astros.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.

Right - if anything, this almost supports the theory that Duquette was right when he let Clemens go and that steroids helped resurrect his career afterwards.

Mitchell is a director of the Boston Red Sox, as well as chairman of The Walt Disney Co., the parent of ESPN.

Mitchell said his role with the Red Sox will not create a conflict. "If, in any way, anyone associated with the Red Sox is implicated, they will be treated just like everyone else," he said.


Is that why ESPN stinks and sucks , it is run by Disney?
A-HA!
It's so clear to me now.

I hate how when they show highlights of a game on Sportscenter they feature a superstar who went 0/5 instead of someone who isn't a "household name" who threw an 8 innings shut out. That happens a lot.

ESPN is a total joke and so are the majority of their "Reporters" and "Radio Personalities".

Earlier Colin Cowpie was saying how after everyone older then 50 dies no one will watch baseball and that he has the "Numbers". He's a moron.
