Re: Funny Article (Clemens)
I'm so glad the Astros did this.... and I hope it comes back to haunt them. A really stupid waste of capital IMO, looking at their offense and what is really needed.
I was listening last night to a critique of this Clemen's deal, and it was mentioned that the Astros' are not a capital rich team with alot of leeway. This could very well hurt them from making any type of deal at the trading deadline to improve this team. it takes them out of the "hunt" basically (which may be good for us).
Clemens is gonna get what?.... around 15 starts or so? I just don't think he is gonna make much of a difference, and I hope he goes 4-12!
Yes - he's a very talented player. Will retire one of the best pitchers overall. But it seems to me (and I may be wrong), that he is playing more for the love of money then a love of the game. It's selfish (ego), and it does strap the Strohs.
"panic" only comes from having real expectations
