Roger Clemens says bye, and thanks. “What the fans have always done for me, being a power pitcher for 20 years, is to help get me going. When you take center stage out there, whether you feel good or bad, once you get on that mound, that crowd can really light you up and elevate your game. I talk about momentum a lot, and they can give that to us. If I’m trying to strike a guy out, the crowd can get me going and pump the team up.”
Thank you Roger, I never could have imagined that you would someday be playing for the Yanks when you were in Boston playing for the despised Red Sox. I never could have imagined that you would become one of my favorite Yankees of all time. So, thanks.
