Clemens - For the Love of the Game ---- NOT!!!

Roger Clemens took the Yankees to the cleaners....as a Yankees fan, I have some serious reservations about the signing....

It has always been about the money for Clemens....the guy is 44-years old and he is trying to fool the public that he is playing for the love of the game - that is crap...he's playing for the $$$$.....

The Yankees are fools for paying $4.5 million a MONTH to a 44-year-old pitcher who can only give you 6 good innings.....and to top it off, the bum doesn’t have to travel with the team if he is not scheduled to start on the road.....

The Yankees do need starting pitching, but general manager Brian Cashman should not have bowed down and kissed Clemens’ ass.....at his age, Clemens should have signed a $4.5 million contract for the season, not per month.....Clemens and his family are financially set for life....he should be grateful that he is still able to pitch and contribute to a possible World Series caliber team.....instead, it was about the money.....don’t let Clemens fool you.....

Clemens really is a real piece of work. He hasn't pitched a full season (not b/c of injury) in like 3 years.

absolutely ridiculous. fuck his 7 cy youngs or whatever. no player should get this king-like treatment.

His surprise appearance at Yankee stadium, microphone and all, was straight outta the WWF. The stadium turned into DMX's posse of pit bulls, it was insane.
