Changing History

I was just reading something over on scott keith’s blog that i’ve been noticing throughout the baseball playoffs that i’ve meant to comment on for a while as it’s really pissing me off.

Roger Clemens is set to retire from Major League Baseball at the end of this year’s playoffs. He made his final start last night but may be used in the bullpen should this series go 7 games. But that’s not my point.

Naturally, when you’re one of the greatest pitchers of all time, you’re retirement will be covered very heavily. Throughout the playoffs there has been little video packages and retrospectives thrown together to show career highlights.

I find it odd that most of these seem to portray that he went directly from the Boston Red Sox to the New York Yankess leaving a 3 year window of apparent nothingness. You know which years I’m talking about, don’t you? Yup. That would be those 3 years where he played in Toronto that apparently we’re all supposed to forget about.

And there’s that small matter of the two Cy Young Awards he won up here signifying him as the best pitcher in baseball that year. Where did those come from?

I digress
