A die-hard Red Sox fan and a former co-host on my sports talk show didn’t seem to mind losing the Roger Clemens sweepstakes yesterday.
I posed the question, “See the Yankees got the Rocket? Are you [angry]?”
“Not at all,” he answered.
After all, it was the Yankees, not the Red Sox, who were trailing by 5 1/2 games in the American League East. It was the Yankees’ staff who couldn’t run from here to the ice cream truck without pulling a hamstring. And, it was those same Yankee starting pitchers who had only had one starting pitcher last into the eighth inning so far this year.
