Return of the Rocket
Former pitching great and accused steroid cheater Roger Clemens is going to pitch again. He’s signed with a minor league team in Sugar Land, Texas. Not as a coach. Not just for show. He’s actually going to pitch in games. At the tender young age of 50.
I guess he just couldn’t turn down a chance to play for a team named “The Skeeters.”
Of course, I was reminded … that the “Skeeter” is the state bird of Texas.
But I can see a year from now… the fans in Sugar Land being real happy their team won a championship; but a little surprised that all the pitchers bulked up by 30 pounds; and gained five miles an hour on their fast ball.
