I really didn't expect this to happen, but it apparently is happening soon.

Apparently if he's convicted, they're going to take away the Yankees' World Series victories from 1999 and 2000.

As well they should.

They're also going to take away all of Boston's World Series victories from 1984 to 1996.

I actually heard that they might change it so that the Sox won Game 6.

But we'll see. It's only an indictment right now.

They did lose to that squeaky clean Mets team after all.

Couldn't happen to a nicer guy. He won't have his muscle around to protect him anymore either.

So...Clemens gets indicted and out come the intellectual heavyweights.

There are many questions regarding Clemens today, questions that time will eventually answer. The Hall. The Cy Youngs: tarnished? The money he made (stole?) from the Yankees and whether it was clean or dirty. The big numbers he compiled and whether some or all were a big lie. The player himself and whether he was mainly fantastic or fake or a combination of both. And those two championships the Yankees won with Clemens' help. No matter if Clemens was on something, they were legit ... weren't they?


Excellent point. I am sure that George Steinbrenner would be alive today, and 10 times richer, if he wasn't being robbed by cheaters while the Yankees were winning 4 titles in 5 years. Poor, poor Steiny.
