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.
