Baseball Writers Have Balls

Lying RogerSo evidently Roger Clemens is a cheating liar. Thanks a lot, Roger.

It was bad enough when Clemens went from the Sox to the Yankees. But as for cheating? Can I just say that I was satisfied with the explanation that his longevity was due to the fact that he put Ben Gay in his cup. That would certainly be enough to push me to extraordinary accomplishments year after year!

I applaud the baseball writers – Love You Verducci! – for refusing to vote the newly eligible players into the Baseball Hall of Fame.

Not only do I have zero interest in the records set by guys who cheated, I have no intention of shelling out my hard-earned money to take my kids to ballparks to watch cheaters play a game I’ve loved since I was a little girl.
