The Greatest Game

Clemens decision was "heart-wrenching"... 

...yeah, heart-wrenching whether or not to accept the "slap in the face" "offer" of "only" $18,000,000. Roger, please stop treating us like we're stupid. You work where you live. You get special treatment from your employer so you can skip "work" to attend your sons' Little League games (and, I'm sure, other events, too), and you're getting paid a king's ransom to do it. Oh yeah, and you just won the Cy Young Award. Stop telling us how "heart-wrenching" it was to make the decision. And while you're at it, don't tell us it isn't about the money. If it wasn't, then you would have reupped at $5M and let your team (who is TRYING to win a World Series) sign some good players.
