Clemens has plenty of ties to the game.
He grew up in Houston and won the 1986 All-Star Game MVP when it was played in the Astrodome. Clemens pitched for the Astros from 2004-06, winning the NL Cy Young Award his first season in Houston.
Clemens broke into the majors with the Red Sox in 1984, and went on to win 3 Cy Young Awards, before moving on to the Blue Jays and Yankees.
Womens Artturi Lehkonen Jersey When he left the club after the 1996 season, it was under less-than-ideal conditions. Boston GM Dan Duquette said at the time Clemens was in the twilight of his career. Clemens then won the AL Cy Young Award the next two seasons in Toronto, before moving on to New York, where he would win a pair of World Series rings.
But folks in Boston have always held a soft spot in their heart for Clemens, the 1986 American League MVP and the only man to have a pair of 20-strikeout games (with both coming in Red Sox uniforms).
89-72. Eighteen new offensive coordinators. That’s right, more than half the league’s teams will turn their offenses over to new coaches this year. You probably didn’t notice because most of the hires were:
So why get excited? Well, there are a few potential winners in the group, like Mark Helfrich in Chicago and John DeFilippo Dallas Cowboys Jersey in Minnesota. And the retreads and randos bring their own layers of intrigue. You may not want to see Russell Wilson and Cam Newton held back by Scottenheimer and Turner offenses, but you won’t be able to look away, either.
The Mets began their year with a lot of hope. They made some underrated free agent signings in Adrian Gonzalez, Todd Frazier, to go along with the return of Jay Bruce, and for the first time, arguably the best starting rotation in baseball was completely healthy. They won 11 of their first 12 games, including nine in a row.
All was good…for a time.

However, once again, the injury bug came to haunt them.
We are only two months into the season, and the Mets have already placed six players on the 60-day disabled list since spring training, matching their total from all of last year. Juan Lagares, probably the Mets best defensive outfielder, is done for the year with a toe injury, which forced them to sign Jose Bautista, who is not nearly the hitter he once was in Toronto.
Matt Harvey, one of the Mets’ biggest homegrown stars, had an ERA of six after four starts, and first-year manager Mickey Callaway moved him to the bullpen. Instead of trying to work back to a starting role, Harvey criticized team management and made his departure the only option.
