Roger Clemens Goes Out in Style

I don't know how this week could have gotten any better. The Red Sox sweep, the Yankees are bounced, and Roger Clemens' line in is his final game is:

2.1 innings, 4 hits, 3 ER, no decision

Now I wouldn't put it past the asshat to attempt another comeback, but it seems less plausible than ever that some team would pay him an inordinate amount of money again to post a +4 ERA for half a season. Yes, Sammich, Clemens was very, very good. But he was also a self-absorbed, arrogant mercenary who screwed over the fans of every team he played for. And for that reason I hate him.

$26.1 million for half a season, two playoff innings and an early exit....I hope it was worth it.

It's Torre's fault
