At this point, I think you'd put Ruth in to pitch. Wang looked good today, but it won't be enough.

What a blowhard.

NEW YORK --Roger Clemens returned to the New York Yankees, making a dramatic announcement to fans from the owner's box during Sunday's game against the Seattle Mariners.

that may give the yanks 3 starters that can get past the 5th inning, but here's hoping they still miss the playoffs.

But at least he followed what he said earlier and went to the team with the best shot at winning the WS and not for largest sum of money.

(If $28 Mil prorated is accurate, its 2.6 times Cy Young winner to be Gil Meche money)

Too bad your prediction of Clemens didn't turn out as well as Papelbon.

the man makes a point.

they're paying clemens less than they payed for the rights to kei igawa, and we all see how that's worked out.

My Dad called me on my cell phone to tell me Clemens had signed. I'm sitting at Wrigley watching the game and he calls me all psyched. Someone with me, who shall remain nameless, knew about the signing but neglected to mention it to me. Anyway, I'm glad he's in the fold, they need the help. Headache, Igawa pisses me off about as much as ed Whitson used to back in the day.

Had the Yanks not started so bad, I think he'd have been in Boston...his agent was at Fenway negotiating when Cshman called last week.
The Sox were gonna probably go for about 18 mil prorated...the Yanks blew that out of the water. Desperate times call for despaerate measures.

Plus Rog has always wanted to pitch alongside Carl Pavano.

What does that put the Yankees payroll at? How much over $200 million?

Yeah but at least with the posting fee you get the guy for at least 5 years, which could end up putting Igawa into Pavano-esque cult status in the Bronx.
