This is a Good Thing

Did we really want this guy to come back here? Nothing good could come of it; it wouldn't feel right. It’d be like reconciling with someone who cheated on you: The relationship is never the same and you’re constantly waiting to be let down again. Not to mention all that self-loathing that comes standard with allowing someone so unworthy to dunk your soul in chocolate sauce and eat it.

Who needs that kind of negative energy?

I for one, was getting desperate for a new pinstriped villain. I could never conjure an ounce of contempt for Johnny Damon and any lingering vehemence toward A-Rod feels tired and contrived. For me, Roger Clemens is just another reason to hate the Yankees. I know I'm not alone. Ticket prices for the Sox/Yankees games in June have tripled on Craigslist overnight. It appears many people are willing to pay upwards of $500 to join the magnificent chorus of boos that will swell up at Fenway as Roger— bloated, aging, and hopefully flailing – takes the mound.

One of the guys over at Highbrid Nation wrote a very interesting post about Roger Clemems and and the "real" reason he has come back to play for the Yankees. Good Stuff.
