As I thought about the upcoming Subway Series, following right on the heels of Clemens’ acquittal, I couldn’t help conjure up this.
There were a few things that struck me, having not seen the footage in a long time:
- How violently Clemens threw that piece of the bat. (‘Roid rage, anyone?)
- How angry he got when confronted. (“You talking to me?”)
- How pathetic it was to have both benches empty during a World Series game. (But good for ratings.)
- How much Yankees-Mets used to matter. (The rivalry just doesn’t have the same edge. At least not for me.)
I hope our pitching gets back on track and that our hitters won’t be thrown by the unfriendly dimensions of Citi Field.
