I was thrilled when Roger came to pitch for the Astros, and I will not forget what he did for us as a pitcher.
But I also remember what he said. About what made Houston different, about what made the Astros different. About how New York couldn't match that.
It is now obvious Clemens lied.
I'm an adult, I understand these things.
But I expected better of a man who claimed to understand what it means to be from Texas.
Clemens will be in the Hall of Fame. He's got tremendous talent and he's a great athlete and loves to win.
But he broke his word, and sold his integrity.
So in my book Clemens went from Stand-Up Guy to Mercenary. And that's all there is to that.
