Clemens reacts: “I’m not overly surprised”

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Jan 09, 2013 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Roger Clemens has commented on the Hall of Fame results through a statement released via Twitter. He basically linked to this picture of his comment:

I’d never heard the phase “muchie peachie,” but apparently it’s roughly the same as “much appreciated.”

    See this is what happens to your vocabulary after years of PED use.

  4. Rich in NJ January 9th, 2013 at 6:15 pm

    A HoF-caliber player can be a scumbag (I have no idea if he is, although I thought his behavior toward Piazza in the WS was kind of bizarre). They’re not mutually exclusive.

    If you keep enough great players out, the Hall will be the ultimate loser.

    The writers are already lost.

    As JB Smoove said on Boomer and Carton today, that’s too specific. It makes a guy think: “How does he know that?”

    More seriously, Jackson (the failed former Knicks coach) said that he “confronted” KG off the court, which just isn’t true.

  23. Nilsson January 9th, 2013 at 7:20 pm

    There’s a video of Anthony standing right outside of the Celtics team bus surrounded by a bunch of people. They looked like arena personnel. This is likely why he got suspended.

    Garnett got into Carmelo’s head. He is notorious for doing that. It’s nothing new. Jordan was probably the best at mentally psyching out opponents.

    “To ignore the historic accomplishments of Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens, for example, is hard to justify. Moreover, to penalize players exonerated in legal proceedings — and others never even implicated — is simply unfair.”

    Spoken like a true cheating bunch! I have never been so proud of the voting body before as I am right now. It shows that even if there are no ethics amongst those we (may of us anyway) truly believe cheated the game by using PEDS – DESPITE not being found guilty – not the same as being found innocent of course – there is an ethical bent in the voting body.

    Munchie peachy? Good thing I didn’t eat before I read that! Fat lying cheat. Cheated honest minor leaguers out of a spot in the game by using PEDS.

    I heard a very interesting call today from a sports fan who believes that the steroid era in baseball is far from over and that there are so many undetectable substances out there and that players, with the salaries they make, can easily pay some of these back-room chemists $100,000 to come up with masking agents like propecia. He said that the players who get caught are either stupid or unlucky. On the other hand, he’s not at all bothered by players using PEDS. (I am) I think he’s absolutely correct in his assessment of the continuation of the steroids era and masking agents. Maybe the players who get caught think that they are using adequate masking agents when they are not. The their “chemists” have some ‘splainin’ to do!

    According to the Detroit Free Press, Birmingham Police said that Miguel Cabrera, after drinking into the wee hours of the morning with some White Sox buddies, came home, woke his 4-year-old daughter, and got into a fight with his wife, Rosangel Cabrera. Although neither party would talk about the apparent fight, Rosangel had what appeared to be an injury to her lower lip, while Miguel Cabrera had an injury to the left side of his face. Rosangel requested that Miguel leave and he accompanied the Birmingham Police to a station house, where a representative of the Detroit Tigers picked him up.

    HOF writers just broke one of the big rules in journalism – do not let yourself the reporter become the story – - – -

    “If journalists becoming a part of the story or an actor in unfolding events gets to be the norm, then the journalistic role is compromised on several levels,” says Paul McMasters, the First Amendment ombudsman at the Freedom Forum’s First Amendment Center. “One is purely practical. If you are handing out food or engaging in a rescue or that sort of thing, you’re not observing; you’re not taking notes; you’re not seeing the larger picture. Secondly, after a while no matter what your motives, it’s going to be interpreted by readers and viewers as grandstanding.”

    I’m just celebrating what I see as an immediate application of ethics. For someone like me who wants to see it ad infinitum, seeing it at all is heartening. And then there’s the law of karma. I don’t know what’s going to happen in the next 4 years, whether there will be a softening with the passage of time. I’m hoping not. But even if there is, the fact that highly-suspicious/suspected perps go through any agonizing and embarrassment, to me anyway, is well earned and well deserved. Then there was the day that Clemens threw a bat at Mike Piazza thinking it was, er, a ball. :roll: Some called it ‘roid rage.

And if the writers made it a story, good for them. Maybe there will be some lessons learned in all of this. As if the writers weren’t going to be asked about the vote anyway.

    Good for Heyman and the moral police. There’s far too little of that and far too much of the “anything goes, just have a good ole’ time at anyone’s expense” attitude in our society and I’m all for some accountability. If it’s in the game that I cherish, all the better.

    This whole myth about standing by and watching it happen is just that-myth.
    The whole nation stood by and watched in amazement when McGwire and Sosa went for the record.
    Up to that point we had no basis to believe they were cheating.
    When they went before Congress and made a mockery of it is when it kicked in.
    They were exposed for the self-entitled spoiled misfits they were and this filtered down from parent to child.
    This is the crux of the matter.
    If you are old enough to have children who worship these cheats and one day you find out your child is using then maybe you change your tune.

  83. trisha - true pinstriped blue January 9th, 2013 at 8:50 pm

    The game is viewed differently by different fans. That person to whom I referred earlier said he’s not at all bothered by steroid use and enjoys the entertainment value of the game. He feels that if steroids make the players better players it makes the game more exciting. That is one view of it. My view is that it’s cheating. So you can see why fans’ opinions on the vote would be all over the board too.

    how the hell does the nfl get such a freakin pass on ped usage?

    ****

    i have my theory – but it is just a theory – - – -

  85. trisha - true pinstriped blue January 9th, 2013 at 8:51 pm

    Y’s Guy, I don’t follow football too much but I alway thought that the NFL was in the forefront of disallowing PED useage. No?

  86. mick January 9th, 2013 at 8:51 pm

    As I said, once they went before Congress and put on their dog and pony show, they were exposed for the cheats they were.

    That’s right, because “Andro” does virtually nothing compared to real steroids, which is why andro was old in GNC and steroids are a federally controlled substance.

    *******

    Ando is not legal anymore – – – -

    Androstenedione, along with numerous other pro-hormones, was made illegal by the 2005 amendments to the Anabolic Steroid Control Act.

    And I do not want hear – well it was legal back in 1998 – great – cociana was once used cola – we know it is dangerous – it is just everyone was ignorant or incompetent to notice back then – – – -

    Of course, society flipped out about something they knew (and still know) little to nothing about, and congress had to do something.

    I’ve actually used both products, andro in the dose sold in gnc was a joke, just stealing people’s money. You could guzzle the entire bottle and flintstone vitamins might be more dangerous.

    When they found andro in McGwire’s locker and everyone was “OH MY GOD WHAT ARE THOSE PILLS IN MCGWIRE’S LOCKER??! CAUGHT!! CHEATER!!!”, I laughed my ass off.

    “how the hell does the nfl get such a freakin pass on ped usage?”

    No antitrust exemption. Just follow that bouncing ball all the way to Congress.

    Flippin’ brazen to boot!

  90. mick January 9th, 2013 at 8:54 pm

    The sacred number in baseball was 61 and McGwire knowingly pissed all over it and us.
    He hugged the Maris family.
    Think it was an accident he missed 1st base when he hit #62?

  91. RadioKev January 9th, 2013 at 8:54 pm

    I honestly don’t remember, was Javy throwing 95MPH the first time he was on the Yankees?

    There’s no downside of using steroids when you’re already washed up. Ask Bartolo Colon.

    Good evening.

    Just a quick stop to say that, IMHO, what happened today is a big fat joke. I’ll give you this tweet from Gordon Edes, retweeted by Ernesto Jerez. I think it summarizes what most of us think.

    @GordonEdes
    This is a fantastic column by Jayson Stark about what needs to be done about the Hall: http://m.espn.go.com/mlb/story?storyId=8826383

    (Hope the link works)

    So – any new Michael Morse rumors – - – -?

  94. Against All Odds January 9th, 2013 at 8:55 pm

    Good for Heyman and the moral police.

    Good for Heyman???? This is the same guy that said I need more evidence that Piazza did not take steroids in order to vote for him

  95. mick January 9th, 2013 at 8:55 pm

    They were stupid enough to think we would fall for that.

    “Rich in NJ January 9th, 2013 at 8:47 pm

    Does anyone really worship another human being”

    according to scripture jesus was human, according to the quram, mohmammed was a human and the buddha was human, so the vast majority of humans worhip at least one human.

  97. Ys Guy January 9th, 2013 at 8:57 pm

    quran, sorry

    Again, Against, I didn’t read anyone’s Twitter, Tweats, columns, etc.

  99. mick January 9th, 2013 at 8:58 pm

    Heyman obviously thinks Piazza juiced as many close to the game do.
    Now that they show the indignation many thought they should have in those early years, he gets called on it?
    Make up your minds..

    Good answer Rich!

    If hero worship is what these twits want, then they deserve those that follow.

    He doesn’t get credit for anything – it is like Woodward and Bernstein knowing or having suspicions about Watergate and then waiting until the 80s or 90s to write their columns and All the President’s Men – - – -timing is everything – - – -

  103. The Return of Stoneburner January 9th, 2013 at 9:03 pm

    For me – this whole vote today with the writers is summed up by Claude Rains in Casablanca:

    Forget about the tweets and columns or whatever. I didn’t read it either it was posted on here. The fact is prove Piazza was a roid user.
