Of all the stories written about Roger Clemens in recent days, the funniest quote came from David Wells.
Boomer doesn’t think Clemens should be able to come and go as he pleases when he’s not pitching.
“I don’t think I would ever do it because of the fact I personally think it would disrespect the team and your teammates,” Wells said. “You look at the other players. How are they going to respect you? What are they going to think if you’re not there pulling for the team?”
Right. Obviously being out of shape and drunk four days a week is a much better way to respect the team. Being so out of shape that you can’t pitch in the World Series, that also is a true tribute to teamwork.
Clearly we should all follow the lead set by Wells. I mean who is this Clemens character think he is? All he does is work out like an Army Ranger six days a week and throw 93-mph fastballs at the age of 44. What a clown.
