Clemens Yearns for Postseason Play
By mvyb, 01.02.2007, 10:43

Roger Clemens addressed the media for a few minutes at the New York Athletic Club last night and stated that 2006 was basically a waste of time for him. His goal was and still is- October.

"I've got to tell you, you put your body through a lot of punishment and you come up one game short like we did last year, for me, it was a waste of time," Clemens said.

"When you don't have an opportunity to go to the playoffs and have a chance to win, it's a waste of time for me. At this stage and point in my life and career, that's all you're looking for. You want to have that feeling of being in the playoffs."

Clemens has stated that he would only pitch for one of three teams in 2007 -- the Astros, the Red Sox or the Yankees, all of whom have ties close to his heart.

So for the next six months, we'll all be scrambling for more news on the Rocket, feverishly anticipating his decision. And, of course, he'll continue to toy with us like he did last night. In the end, he'll go with the highest bidder (who will overpay insanely), make some highly-publicized minor league starts, and finally in late August make an appearance in the majors. He'll be on a five inning work-limit, and he'll walk off the mound with a tweaked hamstring every time he pitches. He'll make a grand total of four starts, picking up a maximum two wins.
But everyone still wants him on their ballclub.
If I were to make an educated guess here, I'd assume he'll go with the Yankees- more money, Andy Pettitte, a ton of friends from yesteryear (Jeter, Posada, Rivera), and the greatest chance at postseason glory.
But I think its time we ask ourselves, is he really worth all this? Do we need to go through all this hassle when we already have a pretty solid rotation and several young backup pitchers (Karstens, Rasner, Sanchez, and Hughes)?
