I may never get a ticket to PNC Field. I was hoping to go Monday but forget it now.
CV: Roger Clemens will pitch for the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees on Monday against the Toldeo Mud Hens. Clemens, who will be making his third minor-league start on his way to joining the New York Yankees, will take the mound at 5 p.m. at PNC Field.
I'm actually amused by this whole Roger is going to save us nonsense being mouthed by the Bomber fans. After tonight the Yanks are 4 games under .500 and 10 1/2 games behind the Red Sox. He might get 20 starts when he is back and NY could hope to win half of them. $18 million for 10 wins, what a bargain.
Phillies update: Philadelphia actually won a game comfortably tonight by 8-3. Jamie Moyer won his 5th game with his first win over the Braves in 20 years. Ryan Howard made a nice return with a 2 RBI hit in the 8th and a circus play at first that got an out. And Mike Zagurski made his Major League debut pitching a perfect inning. But the Mets won.
