The Yankees made it official last night: Roger Clemens will not make his return to the majors this weekend against the Red Sox.Torre: "I'm not disappointed that he's not pitching at Fenway." ... Neither is he, Joe. Neither is he.
To anyone going to the games this weekend: Now is the time to bust out the "WHERE IS RAH-GER?" chant from the 1999 ALCS. ... Make it so.
Torre: "We'd obviously be tempted if we had a kid pitching and we could replace him with Roger Clemens, but we have Wang, Moose and Andy."
Torre: "It's not going to be in Boston because I can't see who I'd dump."
Yup, he's a #4 starter.
Friday: Wang / Wakefield
Saturday: Mussina / Schilling
Sunday: Pettitte / Beckett
