300

I decided to take my hex off of Roger Clemens because the race is so tight and I'd rather see my Yankees win then see Clemens suffer the fate he deserves. I love the Yankees more than I despise him. So Clemens finally got his 300th win and that albatross is no longer hanging around.

Clemens also got his 4,000th strikeout tonight after striking out the side - all three Cardinals going down swinging - in the first inning.

Clemens is, no doubt, a great, hall-of-fame pitcher. My feelings for him, personality wise, do not take away from my admiration of his pitching skills. I'm watching the celebration taking place on the field at Yankee Stadium right now and I can't help but smile.

Congratulations on your 300th win, Roger.

I still hate you.

I feel more or less the same way about Clemons that you do. He's a great ballplayer, but he's also a major league jerk.

To go slightly O/T, I had an online discussion about the Yankees at a music board (http://www.theeyeliners.com) with a ChiSox fan today. We both want Steinbrenner to go ahead and fire Joe Torre, so the Cardinals can right their wrong and hire Joe back, the Sox can hire Tony LaRussa back (I do respect LaRussa, but I'd much rather have Joe back with the Cards), and we can both go back to having our customary, unbridled dislike for the Yanks.

Yeah, I hate it too, but I love that you, Michele, give him his due.... great pitcher, not so great sports hero

Exactly correct.

I'm a Texan amd a RC fan for the most part, but to me the weekend's sport story is Bruce Edwards (TW 's caddy) and Tom Watson. BE has been TW's caddy for the last year and is now battling Lou Gherigs (sp) disease. May everyone's thoughts and prayers be with BE.

I still can't get over his unbridled greed. I hope he is a Red Sox Hall of Famer. I'm a Mets fan, then a Yankee fan, then a Red Sox Hater. May it will all be Well(s)
Because Wells is just the shit (or shizznit, if I may be so daring).

I couldn't agree with you more!!

Although by that time he was kind of a has-been, it reminds me of when Dave Maloney came over to the Islanders from the Rangers. I hated the Rangers back then.

Sports fans are so fickle when their teams are winning! g

I'm just glad my Cubs helped make him wait just a bit longer for that 300th win.... GO CUBS!

Why can't you hope that Clemens get clobbered, then the Yanks bullpen bails the team out for the win.

All you need to know about Clemens is that he lays down and quits when he doesn't get his way. Don't believe me?

1993-1996 40 wins 39 losses, followed by a Steve Carlton-like season for Toronto in 1997. Thank goodness the Bombers don't have to depend on him or else they would be in the tank.

BTW, the Mets are pussies. Piazza should have gone after Clemens.

At least he didn't get it against the Red Sox. That's all I care about.

Yeah, he's a great pitcher. So what? He's also a whiny crybaby who doesn't realize that he plays a GAME for a living.

The REALLY sucky part of it all is that he'll prolly go into the HOF wearing those ugly, nasty pinstripes. He won't even stop to acknowledge that his best years were with Boston. Sure, he's had some great years since, but the pique of his career WAS in Boston, despite Dan (fuckhead) Duquette.

Anyway, good for him. I truly mean that too. There obviously aren't many who win 300. Congrats. Now I hope he shuts up and fades away like a bad fart.
