Well, due to a "commissioner's order", Roger Clemens is in the All-Star game, and Barry Zito is not. Zito found this out today, as he was tossing a ball around at US Cellular Field, the site of the All-Star game. Clemens, I think, either knew well in advance or was as shocked as everybody else when he found out. I'm leaning (like the Tower) to the former. This is just bullshit. Why wasn't there a "commissioner's decision" to get Pedro into the game, who deserves it as much (or more) than Clemens? He could conceivably have 14 wins this year, but Clemens gets in with his record and the 300th win. I hope Clemens gives up the game-winning home run or gets smacked in the face by a line drive.

Hmm, Scioscia and Clemens on the same team?
Maybe Clemens will think he's a chicken, thus ruining the Yankees for the rest of the season. Scioscia can manage the Angels from a hospital bed, no doubt.

I am far from the biggest Roger fan, but the guy should be on the team. He is having a solid year, and this is his last go-around. Ripken made it in his last season, and he was nowhere near the level at his position that Clemens is at his. True, Ripken was voted on, but the fans couldn't very well vote in Roger, could they? You know they would have. Did you hear that ovation the guy got during introductions? I don't get it either - I can't imagine anyone, except fellow pitchers on his team, really likes the guy much anyway. The way they went about putting him on the roster was totally fucking stupid and transparent, but the guy should have been there in the first place. Pedro also, although when Pedro announces his last season, he will certainly be there as well.

Yes, he should be on the team, but gugs wasn't referring necessarily to Clemens being on the team, just the manner in which he was placed on it at the expense of Zito.
