Are the Boston Red Sox Thumbing Their Noses at Bud Selig?
Huffington Post Sports - about 3 years
Yesterday, the Boston Red Sox announced the three newest members of their storied Hall of Fame, the warmest, innermost circle in their legendary Boston creme pyre. The lucky trio are Nomar Garciappara, Pedro Martinez and Roger Clemens.
As a Yankee fan, I say, congrats to all!
By inducting Clemens, Boston seems to be bucking the Selig iron rule of baseball morality: that no player accused of using performance enhancing drugs shall be recognized for his past achievements. According to the National Sportswriters Sacred Code of Hypocrisy, Roger shall be closed out of Cooperstown, along with Barry Bonds, Alex Rodriguez, Rafael Palmeiro, Sammy Sosa and Mark McGwire. No decision has been made on Jason Giambi, David Ortiz, Manny Ramirez, Bartolo Colon, et al -- and the avalanche of names still awaiting public disclosure, when a few years from now a cadre of destitute, or conscience-wear or attention-starved ex-players start writing their tell-all memoirs.
