Now that’s a lot of pitches

USA Today landed outside my hotel room door today and after reading about Lindsay Lohan, I checked out the boxscores and noticed that the Royals threw 224 pitches last night.


I thought I would bring that to your attention.

Meanwhile, it may interest you to know that Roger Clemens was one of the Yankees watching last night’s game from the bench. Interesting because Clemens pitched on Monday and won’t be pitching again until Saturday.

Interesting also because Houston is a very quick private jet ride from Kansas City.

As far as I know, Clemens has missed only three innings and a half a day away from the team since he rejoined the Yankees on June 9 despite the informal agreement he has with the team allowing him to skip town when he wants.

It speaks to his commitment but also to the respect he has for Joe Torre, Derek Jeter and the rest of the Yankees. It also speaks to how silly so many people were when they criticized the Yankees for allowing such a deal in the first place.
