I thought it was a sore shoulder?
That’s just the latest symptom, probably due to compensating for the lower back problems he had against the Yankees. The body is one piece. His knees will probably be shot in a couple of years, if he even lasts that long. It’s a shame, because he has always had the talent to be another Roger Clemens, but he just doesn’t have the intangibles required.
Totally agree with your assessment about Colon’s infuriating lack of comittment to even the most basic of fitness regimines, but to say he has the talent to be another Clemens is a bit off. Clemens is a once in a generation player, period.
Speaking of Clemens, there was a great take on him in a recent Sports Guy column. Someone was wondering why Clemens name is never brought up when steroid accustations are made. He has put on a ton of mass as he’s aged. The guy in the column says he now looks like he’s in the British Bulldogs, which is sort of true. Only makes sense if you followed the 80s WWF, but some of us old guys remember such things. . . .
There’s the ongoing internet rumor that Clemens is gonna be outed as a steroid user after the season. Check Deadspin for details.[/quote]
I have suspected Clemens might be on steroids for a while now.
I am sure he is not the only pitcher even though people only talk about hitters.
