Say It Ain't So, Roger!
He was a Chicago White Sox. He was illiterate. He was charismatic. He was a .356 batter. He was "Shoeless" Joe Jackson.
He was once asked, "It isn't true, is it, Joe?" He responded, "Yes, boys, I'm afraid it is."
He was a New York Yankee. He was a college graduate. He was charismatic. He was a seven-time Cy Young winner. He is Roger "The Rocket" Clemens.
He was mentioned 82 times in the Mitchell Report on steroid use in baseball. He declined to meet with Mitchell to discuss the charges.
It may be a long winter this year. See you in the Legends Field bleachers at 1:15 p.m. on February 29th.
