Extra Innings: 05/07/07

Marz’s thoughts:  With the return of Roger Clemens, I am starting to wonder what the ramifications of this signing will be. I am not talking about what the Yankees will do, I am referring to a contract signing into the season once again. Will this start a trend that will have players like Glavine, Smoltz, Mussina and more all think "i was going to retire but instead, i will make myself available for the final three months." I certainly hope not!
P.S. – I am available to play the final three months if anyone needs me!

Cuch’s thoughts:  Pauline in SD wrote: Finally, there is a GOD. Someone is making fun of the Yankee/Clemens debacle. How about Jake Peavy? Please tell me that the way he is throwing that he could be the first Padre to toss a no-hitter?
Well, Pauline – i think you are onto something here and John said the same thing during the show. He has the stuff that never touches middle of the plate and if he has good movement of his pitches, he will have not only the K’s, but the ability to have 27 guys not get a single good swing on him!
P.S. – Goodness Gracious….I love this blog stuff!!

Marz- I just blogged something similar about Clemens. For the past 2 years I’ve referred to him as “The Mercenary”, and it would be a terrible thing for baseball if it becomes more of a common thing for older pitchers.

Oh, and we need a catcher for our softball league, Sunday morning double headers in Brooklyn, can we count you in?

Cush- The Padres pitching staff overall is real impressive. I think the second half of the season will be real interesting with division races and the teams fighting for the wild card. There’s about 8 or 9 legit teams that will be fighting for 4 spots.

Baseball, ain’t it a beautiful thing?
