    I think he's done regardless of the cell commercial.

    It kind of is a d_b, but because the original thread was locked it really isn't.

    I think he's done. Unless the Yankees decide to fork over some more dough. I don't think any other team will take the risk again.

    His last three seasons in the AL his ERA has been 4.35, 3.91 and 4.18. His last three seasons in the NL his ERA has been 2.98, 1.87 and 2.30.

    He also hasn't exactly sparkled in the postseason since (and including) 2002. In fact, his career postseason ERA is 3.75.

    So, I'd say an AL team wouldn't be smart to pick him up, especially if it was counting on him to be a postseason star (and especially for the outrageous sum of money he's likely to want).

    The Yankees are not ponying up any more money for Clemens.
    I hope nobody else is stupid enough to fall for his bullshit, either.

    Spnited, Roger is not the pitcher he once was. His legs are shot and that's where he got his power from. I think he genuinely loves to compete and can't find a way to let go.
    I think if someone offers him something decent, he'd come back again.

    I agree completely, boots. He's done but can't let go.
    I think anybody who pays him next year is stupid.

  10. Do you think anyone will be that stupid?

    Well, I'm pretty certain it won't be the Yankees, so I doubt there's anyoner else out there willing to spend $12 or $15 million (you know Roger's ego won't allow him to accept less) on a washed up old man.

    It don't matter. Got a new phone. Deb said no.
