I’m still in utter disbelief Roger Clemens got off (obstruction of justice ), because I sincerely doubt that everyone involved “misremembered” him using performance enhancing drugs. If he knows what’s good for him, he should just go away for a while so that this can die down a bit.
But no, the 50-year old has decided to sign with an independent team. So let me ask you this: what happens when he still tops 95 mph on the gun?
Roger Clemens just can’t quit baseball. The 50-year-old seven-time Cy Young award winner has signed to play with the Sugar Land Skeeters, according to the team’s official website.
The report also indicates that Clemens is expeted to start for the Skeeters Saturday in Sugar Land (Houston area, for those unaware). Some of his teammates are notable names, like Scott Kazmir, Tim Redding and Jason Lane — who has converted to pitcher.
The Skeeters are a member of the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball, which is not affiliated with Major League Baseball. Thus, Clemens’ status on the Hall of Fame ballot this coming Winter is unchanged. He’ll be on that divisive ballot along with Barry Bonds and many other huge names sure to get the vitriol machine cranking in late December.
