An interesting take on Roger Clemens

I can't say it's often I think back to Roger Clemens departure from Boston after 13 years with the Sox, but Mark Feinsand brings up an excellent point in his own piece in the New York Daily News. Perhaps, just maybe, Dan Duquette made the RIGHT call when allowing Roger Clemens to leave and sign with the Toronto Blue Jays.

The article is worth a read, and points out some very solid facts that might lead you to believe that this is a solid statement. I'll summarize them here, but check out the link to read it in full.

He points out a 40-39 record, and the only two losing seasons in Clemens career came right before his rejuvenation in Toronto. Ironic, seeing as he mets his new personal trainer, Brian McNamee, and got him to follow him to New York as well.

As I said, Feinsand makes some excellent points, this is a must read for anyone who really wants to delve into this issue.
