Roger Clemens Is Now a Yankee

Reporter Mike Moriarty joined John Fricke and Marques Johnson on Fox Sports Radio moments ago and said Roger Clemens was in George Steinbrenner’s box for Sunday’s Mariners/Yankees game and announced the news that he is now a Yankee. Roger addressed the fans during the 7th inning stretch telling them

Thank you all. Well, they came and got me out of Texas. And I can tell you it’s a privilege to be back…I’ll be talking to you all soon.

No financial terms have been made available just yet, but Clemens is expected to make a few minor league starts before joining the Yankees.

    Yeah I have to agree my favorite player of all time but seriously the guy is money hungry glory hound. There is no chance for him to succeed in New York the bullpen is being taxed daily. Lets be real here just for this move alone I hope he tanks. He could have went to the Red Sox had a good bullpen to back him up and a team that would put runs up for him. He really could have made a special full circle run at another ring instead he went for the money thats his legacy now milking the highest bidder

    Can someone please give me a dime for every time espn has and will remind us that the yankees and red sox play the first weekend in June so I can retire.

    I told you so. With each recent Yankee loss, Yankee panic set in. I heard he gets a prorated salary based on an annual salary of $28 million. That’s PANIC.

    Roger is fifteen wins away from tying Warren Spahn’s modern* record of 363 wins. He would have been closer if he had pitched for the Yankees or Red Sox the past two seasons, and not for the Astros, who failed to give him adequate run support.

    *modern = post-1930.

    Wonder why the baseball world isn’t all up-in-arms over Spahn’s record like they are Aaron’s?

    THEY SHOULD BE butler, IT’S BECAUSE THE FAN WANTS TO SEE SOME MUSCLE BOUND JERK JACKED UP ON ROIDS INSTEAD OF A FINELY PITCHED GAME.THERE IS NO COMPARISON IN MY BOOK, AND I DONT MEAN JUST ROGER I MEAN BASEBALL FANS AS A HOLE.

    Well, Cy Young holds the record for wins, and that’s not ever going to be broken. Plus, it’s pitching, not as important to fans, and harder to judge
