Roger And The New York Yankees' Desperate Offer

Fenway Blogger, linked on your right under the link list, steered me to this article from SI. Thank you FB! Here's the gist of it, and oh yes, I will be back to comment about this polarizing for us Red Sox fans issue...to Rocket, or not to Rocket. If not...do we risk him going to the hated Steinbrenner troops? Read on.....on this grey but finally above freezing Saturday morning. Click on the entire title for the SI piece, recommended.......

NEW YORK -- "The New York Yankees took advantage of Roger Clemens' attendance at Legends Field on Wednesday to ask Clemens back to the Bronx, SI.com has learned.
However, Clemens' answer to the Yankees didn't exactly clear up the situation. He told Yankees owner George Steinbrenner that he wasn't close to deciding his comeback plans.
A source on another team said Clemens is believed to be seeking between $16-18 million from June 1 on, which would represent a slight raise over the pro-rated $22 million he made in 2006. That figure probably won't scare off the Yankees or Boston Red Sox but might give the Houston Astros pause. Those are the three teams in the Clemens derby.
It is believed Clemens is planning a June return, like last year when he returned for his third season after "retiring.'' He is 38-18 with a 2.40 ERA since he announced his "retirement'' following the 2003 season."

Peter here. A 2.40 ERA! Wow. First of all, to John Henry, money is NO issue. Now ask yourselves....will a healthy, in shape Roger Clemens, no matter what you think of him, help the 2007 Boston Red Sox? There is only ONE answer! YES. All the more because by coming to the Sox in June, the Yankees (now lets all say AWWWW!!) will be denied his low ERA and his wonderful pitching.

So I'm leaving it out there, and waiting for you to put in your two cents, or twenty. Or two thousand. It's up to you. Thanks for being here!

Roger is a man of many mind games:

He should be given a Colonic to clear his mind

I would be glad to hear that Roger the Rocket was coming back to Fenway! He would be a big improvement over that David Wells (I was not a fan of his)!
