From our Late to the Going-Away Party desk
The hardreading staff apologizes for failing to note earlier that Wednesday’s Boston Herald front page touting Michael Silverman’s Hall of Fame votes featured Roger Clemens in a New York Yankees uniform.
Drive purists nuts graf:
Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens — Their supposed sins seem to be evaporating right in front of the eyes of once suspicious voters. I can’t figure out how four more voters — 242 — voted for Clemens than Bonds last year, but at least last year’s voting showed the two above 50 percent for the second consecutive year, at 57.3 and 56.4 percent respectively. They have four more years on the ballot. We can only hope the two most impactful players of their generation will get their due.
The hardjudging staff does not agree, and – as a Made Yankee Fan in Boston – we resent the shifty local tabloid’s shunting off Steroid Roger to the Bronx Bombers-in-numerous-postseasons.
Your resentments go here.
