We've already discussed Roger Clemens checkered past, but now for him to endorse cheating just adds more fuel to our fire. In regards to a question about Carlos Gomez's nifty catch at the wall on Friday, Clemens told the media "I'm wondering where that fan is that leans over and catches balls (a clear reference to Jeffrey Maier). We need one of them young fans again." Next time, breaking baseball's rules might be the way to go. Consider that in Clemens' 11 regular-season appearances against the Mets, his team is just 3-8. His 3-6 record against the Mets is the same as Steve Trachsel's. That's not good. True Metmens know... The Mets have one regular-season walk-off win in a game Clemens pitched. It was a 1-0 victory on April 13, 2005, with the game-winning hit coming from Jose Reyes, whose performance on Friday, by the way, was greatly reminiscent of Game 6 of the 2006 NLCS.
