Re: If I were GM for the offseason...
Yeah, I didn't realize the Clement news never made it here. He's done, almost definitely for the length of his contract, and maybe even for good. Poor guy took a ton of crap for supposedly being fragile emotionally or whatever, turns out he was trying to pitch with a badly damaged shoulder, and it just didn't show up on the MRIs. He could have had the exploratory done months ago, but he kept rehabbing and trying to pitch.
