As the retirement world turns
Apparently, those days are gone. And, unfortunately, two of the more enjoyable players to watch in their respective leagues are tarnishing their reputations by doing just that: Roger Clemens and Brett Favre.
After watching Clemens in Game 3 of the National League Championship Series, it was clear that, in October (and much of the second half), he wasn't the same Rocket. The Cards swung and missed at 3 pitches in six innings and 100-plus pitches of work. THREE PITCHES. That's a total reserved more for Ezequiel Astacio or Wandy Rodriguez not a future Hall of Famer.
Clemens has been a wonderful ambassador for baseball and should let the World Baseball Classic, if he is healthy enough to pitch in it, be his farewell address to the world.
