I started this post trying to jinx Clemens, because he's on someone else's team in my league. After his excellent outing, though, I'm in line for the save with Octavio Dotel, so I can salvage that.
Nope. Dotel gives it up in the 9th.
I should never have tried to jinx Clemens.
On the other hand, maybe I can get a cheap win from Dotel now.
Roger Angell: I was talking with Bob Gibson and I said: 'Are you always this competitive?' He said: 'Oh, I think so. I got a three-year old daughter, and I've played about 500 games of tic-tac-toe with her and she hasn't beat me yet.'
