I guess just like some of the other players of his era, the more recent extra-curricular shenanigans have blurred what Clemens was.
You can understand people not wanting to vote for a cowardly paedophile.


Even changing his name to "Rodger" couldn't hide his ugly past...

There's only one name on that list whose dominance caused MLB to change the rules of the game to give hitters a chance. And as of right now he's not making the cut.

Which is why this kind of poll is refreshing. Had it been called "whose the best of all time?" I'm sure he'd be right up there, but it's not. It's who is your personal favorite?

Voting for yourself. How pathetic.


I was so good though


I really wanted to vote for Babe Ruth league LastingsGriller here, but in all honesty 1990 Jose Rijo truely outshined LastingsGriller. even to the point that LastingGriller idolized 1990 Jose Rijo, so Jose got the nod. ;-)

You can understand people not wanting to vote for a cowardly paedophile.

People have been fans of far worse people than Roger Clemens.

Clemens, however, may have alienated all of his.
