I thought this was highly amusing and had to share it with everyone in case you missed it.
Roger Clemens was asked about Mike Piazza‘s claim in his upcoming book that he took karate lessons in order to exact revenge on Clemens – I guess Piazza did it in case Clemens were to ever plunk him again. Clemens, to his credit, had a few funny quips in his statement, even one where he mentioned that Piazza would have had to have gotten in line behind at least three of his Yankee teammates at the time, who also wanted to slug him. I wonder who they were. Hmmm.
Anyway, I thought the most amusing line of the whole Clemens statement was this one:
“He chased some dude around the spring training site one time, didn’t he, or something?”
Do you guys remember when Guillermo Mota hit Piazza with a pitch in Spring Training and Piazza went after him? It happened ten years ago this Spring but to this day, it is still one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen.…
