Roger Clemens Back to the Yankees...

If you didn't hear, Roger Clemens, the biggest mercenary in sports has decided to return to the Yankees...

The Yankees have no pitching, and I'm sure they'll pay him a king's ransom.

He's with Andy Pettitte again, and I knew he was going to return to New York (as predicted...)

From ESPN:
NEW YORK -- Roger Clemens returned to the New York Yankees, making a dramatic announcement to fans from the owner's box during Sunday's game against the Seattle Mariners.

At the end of the seventh-inning stretch, Yankees public address announcer Bob Sheppard told fans to turn their attention to the box, where Clemens was standing with a microphone. As the video scoreboard in right-center televised Clemens, the seven-time Cy Young Award winner made the announcement himself.

"It's a privilege to be back," he said.

Clemens agreed to a minor league contract and most likely will join the Yankees after several weeks getting into shape.

Clemens, who is close friends with Yankees pitcher Andy Pettitte, said Pettitte is going to be upset with him because he kept the news quiet. The two talked as recently as Saturday night and Clemens didn't share the news.

"It's time to go to work," Clemens said. "I've got a lot of work to do, to get back up here."



The rat bastard...

I wouldn't go that far. Did you forget about Wang, Pettitte and Mussina?
