Rocket's Last Start...Ever?

In the WBC game tonight that pits Mexico vs, the USA, Roger Clemens will take the hill in what might be his last start, EVER. I would have to say that I would be very surprised if he doesn't play at least a good portion of the season with a Texan club. But the chance is there. This might be his last start. Ever. Here's the blub from a Minneapolis/St. Paul paper......... "Clemens' start today against Mexico could be his last
From news services
Roger Clemens might be pitching in his last game tonight. And Team USA could be playing for the final time in the inaugural World Baseball Classic.
Clemens, a winner of 341 games in a magnificent career that began with the Boston Red Sox in 1984, opposes Mexico to complete Round 2 of the WBC at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, Calif.
Clemens has said he's leaning toward retirement after the Classic. As evidenced by his 13-8 record and NL-leading 1.87 earned-run average for Houston last season, the 43-year-old right-hander can still do the job as well as anyone around."

***Peter here again. I will be in front of the set tuned into channel 202, ESPNHD, with a smile and memories of Roger younger, thinner, fresh faced and facing glory, rather than creating it, as he will tonight. Enjoy!
