Roger Clemens Is A Yankee...Again

Sunday, May 06, 2007

NESN is reporting via the YES Network that Roger Clemens announced to the Yankee Stadium crowd today that he has signed a deal with the team and will join the pitching staff as soon as he is major league ready.

The terms weren't disclosed during the short report I just saw, but I was telling my father last night that with their pitching woes, the Yankees were probably going to throw as much money as it took to get him into pinstripes. Money and unlimited shoulder massages from Andy Pettitte.

I'm not one to wish direct harm on anyone, but Clemens is 44 years old (45 in August). The clock runs out on every professional athlete eventually - here's hoping this is the year it happens to Clemens.

(Update: the mainstream media and unkempt blogosphere united as one to jump all over this story as soon as Clemens picked up the microphone at Yankee Stadium, but one analysis stands head and shoulders above the rest. Lizzy from Babes Love Baseball, you have the floor.)

Signal - when are we going to see a "Douchebaggery Scale"? I think I would enjoy that.

I love seeing the true colors of other loser fans. Hating the Yankees - there's a real stretch, eh?

further proof that we need a salary cap in baseball: the yankees paid him 28 mill (or so buster olney reported) for the remainder of the season. So projected over a whole year that is about 38-40 mill (guessing taht he is not starting till at least june)

that is greater than a few teams payroll, this is a problem.

So, uh, when is Clemens' name going to be seriously mentioned in the steroid scandal?

Signal, Quail - douchebaggery scale; make it happen.

What's a salary cap. Come on, even if you're a Yankee hater, at least this gives you more fuel to want to perform some mass genocide on the team. And the Yankees just punched their ticket for teh playoffs.

It's win-fucking win, baby.

Whenever you get that Douchebaggery Scale put together, Suzyn Waldman deserves a solid 10.
