Clemens is about the biggest DB to come through Boston in my lifetime, and that's really saying something. He wanted to get thrown out of that game. He's the LeBron James of 90's and 2000's baseball. He had to go to the Yankees to win a championship.

But Morgan was a class act, loved him. Tollway Joe is my favorite Sox manager ever.

WOW, announcers were worse then than they are now!!

Glad Don put them in their place. He was 100% correct.

In 5th grade, when we played touch football at recess, I wasn't the last pickā€¦ I was the ref.

RATS never change. Clemens is a douche.

Ah the old days:

Roger Clemens before steroids
Wade Boggs
Flip up sun glasses
Joe Morgan
Mike Gallego
Elbecco shirts
AL branded umpires
The Oakland A's actually in the playoffs

You know, I sometimes miss the Elbeccos.

"To stare down a big league pitcher. To stare him down, and just as he goes into his windup, wink. Make him think you know something he doesn't. That's what I wish for. Chance to squint at a sky so blue that it hurts your eyes just to look at it. To feel the tingling in your arm as you connect with the ball. To run the bases - stretch a double into a triple, and flop face-first into third, wrap your arms around the bag." Dr. Archibald "Moonlight" Graham

All the players got a warning that day, it's called common knowledge. They know if they get personal they are gone. They all know it, Clemens knew it.

A vary experienced and respected umpire said no warnings period. Then the world's dumbest follow up question, then why no warning in the situation. Because there are no warnings moron. Switch announcers, they really need a warning. So what part of no warnings is so hard to understand? You act like an ass, insult the man personally and then acted shocked when you get dumped, amazing. :hopmad:
