Anything that ups the chance that some batter will take his bat to the mound and beat Clemens into a coma...I'm all for it.

Meh. He's trying to reset the clock another five years for HoF balloting so no one will remember he was more juiced than a supermarket's Ocean Spray aisle.

In other words, the Astros' owner wants to put asses in the seats for games that won't even draw fans of the other team.

Why does it even matter? The AAstros were the first team officially eliminated from any contention weeks ago (in fact, they're currently still the only team completely eliminated, though the Cubs could join them tonight).

my math could be off, but I think the Cubs and above are still technically, mathematically alive for the second wild card spot

Any idea where that quote closes?

No need for math:
 
http://mlb.mlb.com/mlb/standings/index.jsp?tcid=mm_mlb_standings
 
MLB.com provides elimination numbers for both division and wild card.   They're my go-to standings page at the end of the season.
 
And you're correct, the Cubs are technically not eliminated from the wild card standings.

what does it matter who he pitches against at this point?
 
2012-09-11 02:58:23 PM
I hope he gets his wish. I would love to see him get lit up by the Nats or Reds, or even Philly. Great way to end your career douchebag.

Of course they'd be interested in Clemens. This thread might be viewed in more households than Sunday's Astros game was.

Came to say exactly this.

He can say he doesn't care about the Hall, but that doesn't mean we'll believe it.

It never closes, we are stuck in the quote. Everything you have ever done, thought, indeed your entire life is now a part of this quote. Your life is now part of a bad quote about an irrellevant over the hill pitcher.

titty sprinkles.
