The egos of some of these assholes. You never want to be that guy at the party who doesn't know the party's over and it's time to go home. I hope if he steps foot on a major league field, he is booed mercilessly, then tattooed for 10 runs before he records an out. What next, Brett Favre crawling out of the sewer for a comeback?

Like Kenny Rogers said, you gotta know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em, know when to walk way, and know when to run. Fold 'em and run, Roger. Fold 'em and run.

If he plays a game, his HOF eligibility is pushed back 5 more years. I imagine he's hoping the steroids tag will get lost over time, or at least the glare won't be as pronounced

I was looking forward to some of the games there, it's a lot more fun and personal than a typical MLB game. But I just really, really, really have a problem with cheering for a guy who is not guilty, but sure as f*ck not innocent, either. At least in front of the kids.

they were selling tickets pretty well, I'm a little disappointed they'd try to boost sales with a little... um... "performance enhancement"?

/on the other hand, I could go to a game with a fake tourniquet around my arm...
//pretty sure this was covered in Baseketball.

What the fark did he do that was so impressive? Throw a farking BASEBALL? Did he cure cancer today? Did he save a life?

Yes, you dumbfark, the only thing a 50 year old can do that is impressive is throw a baseball.

Spent 20 seasons in the major leagues and was the oldest player in the AL during his final season (2008). Officially retired shortly before his 44th birthday. 

/Watched bits of the Clemens comeback game. His fastball was topping out just under 90mph and his splitter wasn't doing much, but the curve was still nasty.
 
2012-08-26 02:19:21 AM
Three and a third innings? Big whoop. The Spaceman had a complete game win Thursday after throwing 100 pitches in batting practice on Wednesday. And a hit and an RBI. He's 65.

This is exactly right. Clemens is a cheater and a liar but more than anything, he is an egomaniac - he will go nuts if he is not a first ballot Hall of Famer.

It's sad, because he wants to prove he can do it clean. Only now he's 50 and he'll get toasted if the Astros bring him up.
There is no way can this possibly end well...

If the Astros bring him up to the major leagues and he throws one pitch in a game then to Roger Clemens it is a success if he gets elected to the HOF in five years.

I've read often on he is so competitive, I believe he will probably try to finish one entire season. We all know he's trying to throw one pitch to get the HOF moved back - but we all want to believe the rocket is back.
/Yankee fan who bought a Rocket jersey, I don't care anymore - steroids destroyed my look at baseball.

Those frosted tips make him look like he is either gay or a total douchebag.
 
2012-08-26 10:30:11 AM
Just the potential of him pitching for the Astros is probably getting tickets bought to upcoming games by speculators hoping to turn a quick profit.
 
2012-08-26 10:46:27 AM
If someone would let me pitch in a professional game I would do it just for the lulz.

Many minor league teams, particularly those in one of the independent leagues, often hold open tryouts before the season.
 
2012-08-26 12:18:16 PM
It was always clear to me that Roger Clemens would get another shot.

Be careful, be very careful what you ask for. You know Favre's itching for that one last pick, I mean, touchdown pass.
 
2012-08-26 12:44:13 PM
Sad thing is, he'll get that one start with the Astros.

Never underestimate the mind of an egomaniac.
 
2012-08-26 01:28:59 PM
Could be that he pitched in that game to help out a new minor league ball club increase their attendance.

Bingo. He's only coming back to buy himself 5 more years so that people will forget he's a PED taking sack of shiat.

seriously does he really think people will forget him 5 years from now? Like his name will come up and all the BWOA will sit around and go, "Well he struck out a lot of guys. Seems like there was something else but what...? Awwww, I can't be bothered to do a Google search let's just vote him in". Sorry, I doubt this is why he's doing this.

Well you oversimplified it a whole lot. I think the thinking is that, maybe not in 5 years, but in 15, the outlook on steroids will be/could be different. A player stays on the ballot, as long as he receives 5% of the vote, for up to 15 years. Then goes to the veteran's committee. He won't get in on the first ballot when he's eligible now, or if he's first eligible in five years. But maybe he'll get in on that 12th ballot or when the vet committee in 2040 is made up of his old teammates.

It'd be hilarious if he comes back and fails a random drug test. Much like Lance Armstrong, you know he thinks he'll never get caught and needs to the PED's more now than ever.
