I understand that he didnt start using until he signed with the Blue Jays in 1997 and I get that he isnt being inducted into the “good guy” Hall of Fame but, the guy doesnt deserve this honor.
Not only is Roger Clemens a known steroid user, but the guy is one of the biggest pricks in the history of Major League Baseball. To this day, he denies ever using. He is a pathetic excuse for a human being and he treats us like we are the assholes.
I feel bad for Nomar Garciaparra, Pedro Martinez, and Joe Castiglione. I really do. The fact that they have to share this special moment with one of the biggest frauds in the history of Major League baseball and one of the faces of the steroid era is a damn shame.
I should be talking about how incredibly dominant Pedro Martinez was despite the fact that about 90% of the guys he pitched to were juicing. Or how Nomar Garciaparra always played the game the right way. Or how how Joe Castiglione covered baseball with grace and integrity.
But I just cant get it out of my head that these three class acts will be going into the Red Sox Hall of Fame along side a guy whose face belongs on the Mount Rushmore of steroids.
The Red Sox Hall of Fame should be something sacred. And the fact that Roger Clemens will be forever enshrined in there makes it look like a friggin joke. I wonder if Brian McNamee will donate Clemens' use syringe. He should.
