Clemens could arguably be the best pitcher that played for the Red Sox but now he is treated like dirt and his family gets spit on because he plays for the Yankees. Wasn't it Duquette who essentially cut him from the team by lowballing him? I don't think ex-Yankee players get the same treatment back in NYC. Tino Martinez, Chuck Knoblauch, Joe Girardi, David Cone, actually received props whenever they came to town. Nobody considers Cone a "traitor" for wearing a Red Sock uniform either.
Some of this "I hope he blows out his arm" stuff is a little... disconcerting.

His last days in Boston, all he did was cry about a new contract. While doing so, he put up mediocre #'s and took on the cheeseburger conditioning program. He takes off to Toronto, shows up in the best shape of his life and wins 2 Cy Youngs. Then he does the ultimate sell out move, bolts for New York to buy his rings. Just a little bit different scenario than the ones above. Now if you can find me a player that sold out to the Yankees and got cheered on his return, then I will accept your argument. .
