    Rocket lips poised to take a loss

    Roger's much ballyhooed debut is going pretty much like his first couple of months last year. Not bad, but no run support.

    ESPN needs another reality series for the guy.... maybe even his own network.

    I'm so happy that he is back in the majors...so that way I don't have to hear all the crap about how he's retired, then maybe he'll come back, then he wants to be close to home, then he wants a chance at a championship, then wants to be with his kids, then his kids want him to play again, then...

    Joe Morgan was talking about how great of shape Clemens keeps himself in, in spite of how old he is. I wish he would have said something to the effect of "Of course, that's what we all said about Barry until the BALCO case broke." How great would that have been?

    I picked him up on one of my fantasy teams about a month and a half ago so he is officially jinxed.

    I'm just glad Rocket got the L and this thread didn't jinx the good guys (Twins).

    Rocket mouth just took a loss, and he's holding a press conference.

    No more ridiculous than ESPN putting an Aaron Watch on the ticker when they show the scores to the Giants games. I could understand if he was at 750 but he's not even to 720 yet.

    Rocket lips sink ships?
    Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.

    If they should be talking to anyone it should be Liriano.
