Clemens...One More Time
Now wait, my faithful readers...I know we're all a little sick of the back and forth about Roger Clemens. But....you have to read this. Ken Rosenthal, from Fox Sports dot com, wrote one of the best articles I have read so far about Steinbrenner's money spending spree of Sunday May 6th. Not a bad move by the 70-something year old owner of a team that needed JUST this. JUST THIS. Call him crazy, but he still has (I think) baseball smarts. If the Boston Red Sox were in the same dire situation, and $10 million more would have brought him back to Beantown, they would have done it. Crazy money well spent by a desperate team. And a NOT so crazy owner. Will it prove to be the bonanza that owner George Steinbrenner is striving for, as EVERY owner should? It very well might. The future will tell. But I do want you to click on the title of this post. If you're on baseballnooze.com, just come over to my blog. The title here is an active link.
Everyone, all my readers, on this Monday, a day after "that Sunday", a Sunday we will all remember, I promise this. For good, for bad, I love the 2007 Boston Red Sox...the players, the coaches, the........the........the everything! Toronto here we come. And it does look like Roger Clemens will pitch his first game for "that" team against the very team I love. C'mon...the team we ALL love. Will we beat him and his team? Oh yes!!!!!!
And I DO have to say this. When May turns to June, when flowers are in bloom, when other teams will swoon. THE BOSTON RED SOX WILL BE IN FIRST PLACE. We'll be there. I know.....all year!
Now click on the title....and thanks.
