I believe it was a shot of B 12 or it was a shot full of HGH, but only for his wife prior to a Sports Illustrated shoot, but whatever was in the syringe, Mike and the INSIDER Jon Heyman gave a shot of approval for Roger Clemens attending the Yankees farewell ceremony.

Yes, i know that the Yankees have a little bit of a steroid issue given the presence of Giambi, Pettite, IRod, etc on their roster and so maybe they look like hypocrites, but does anyone honestly feel that Clemens could have attended this ceremony and it would not have turned into a circus? The guy is radioactive at the moment.

One option, maybe they could have had one of those pretend players like they had for Babe Ruth and Joe D, come out as Clemens, then they could have honored him as if he was dead to them, which he essentially is.

Puppets, fake players, I'm all for make believe to solve the problems. A little creativity goes a long way

Both Pettite and Giambi APOLOGIZED for their use of steroids and HGH. Let me hear Clemens finally come clean (which it's way too late for anyway), and then MAYBE it would be a legitimate arguement.

Anyone who thinks Clemens should have even been mentioned is an idiot. It would have ruined the night and made a controversy of something that is so old and dead. I don't know why these idiots (any sports writer or telecaster) has to bring this up. It is not necessary and no one wants to hear it. I'd rather listen a legitimate argument, such as why Torre wasn't mentioned in the ceremony.

I think at 5:05pm Mike Fatcesa referred to the New York Mets as "My Mets"..

It was too soon for Torre. I think there is at least a little bad feelings between the two parties. I loved Torre but it seemed apparent he had conversations with the Dodgers prior to his last meeting with the Yankees.

Maybe Mike was quoting Apu trying to talk like an American. "Let's watch the baseball match. The Nymets are my favorite squadron."

Bill, the Yankees royally fucked Torre and gave him no choice...he is one of the classiest people in baseball and was completely loyal to the Yankees. He had every right to explore his options, and there is no reason not to invite him to Yankee Stadium for the final game OR AT LEAST mention his name

I have to agree with Loki here. Clemens is a disgrace to baseball - has lied to our politicians and to the public over and over, hasn't admitted he is wrong. Pettite and Giambi came clean and apologized for the actions. Also Torre was blackballed by the Yankees, leaving him twisting in the wind and then giving him a lowball offer they knew he'd probably reject. It was a slap in the face and he left. They definitely should have had a video message from him or at the very least mentioned his name.
