From thebrushback.com: linky (http://www.thebrushback.com/october_full.htm)

I really dont know where Im going to be playing at this point, Clemens said. My plan is to just wait for the World Series and sign with whoever is ahead. So like, if the White Sox are on top of the Cardinals 3-2, I could come in and pitch Game 7 for the White Sox. I just love those situations! Nothing gets my juices flowing like pitching the final game of the World Series for the team that placed the highest bid on me. That is what baseball is all about.

We would have to get to the World Series first.
He just wants the glory, not the work to get us there. :?:

The Sox had a chance to get Clemens years ago and Schuller or someone called him "damaged goods". That was a couple Cy Youngs ago. Imagine if they would have acted then.

It was also pre-roids, most likely.

Schu proclaimed The Rocket was "washed up." He signed someone else instead who had a bright future ahead of him: Jaime Navarro.

I had every one of those emotions when reading this... and some Sox fans on this board have the nerve to criticize Ken Williams... WOW.. Schu must have been doing a lot of :gulp:

The hitters destined to face him had bright futures also.

Unfortunately, I have to say no to The Rocket. We had our chance to get him ten years ago, and we didn't. Who knows if he would've won us a World Series anyway?

...and to this day, the White Sox use their own stupidity in signing Navarro over Clemens as the reason why they won't give any pitchers long term contracts.

I defintiely dont think its just Navarro...if you look around baseball at guys that have been given longer than 3 year contracts - It hasn't worked out that well. Mike Hampton, Kevin Brown and soon to be Barry Zito are going to get paid for more than their production.

I suppose it was irrelevant that Navarro was coming off a 15-win season as the Cubs best pitcher and signed for $5 million a year, and Clemens had a losing record with only 10 wins and signed for $8.4 million a year and health questions having not won more than 10 games since 1993 (when he won 11) at a time, a decade ago, when Albert Belle was one of the three highest paid players in the game (as stipulated in his contract), getting $10 million a year from the Sox.

And because this article wasn't printed in teal, I have no way of knowing that it was satire.

It's all about context.

For those blaming Schuler, like it was said, this was pre-roids Clemens. I really don't ever want to see Clemens on the White Sox, the guy is a tool. To me it'd be like having Bonds on the team. And I don't know about anyone else, but it's kind of obvious the article is satire.

Indeed, maybe I should have cast that second paragraph in teal, but I thought doing so would diminish my point.

Oh, yeah that wasn't directed at you, I was pretty sure you were being sarcastic, but I'm sure a few people missed the point.

An organization who didn't make it to the World Series for nearly a Century making poor personnel decisions? Surely you jest. :tongue:

I think we are on the right track now with the right GM. When you really think about what KW has accomplished since coming here, and that he's still with us and should be for a while... we should be champions again sometime soon.

When Navarro is mentioned, the word "dark" describes it well.:D:

Well it's all a moot point anyway, since Clemens was picked up by the Yanks.
