Dave's been talking about Roger Clemens batting. This reminds me of the one time I actually recall Clemens batting. Under certain circumstances the pitcher will bat in the AL. (It's rare.) This was several years ago, when Clemens was still with the Red Sox. A regular season game against the Mariners. Clemens pitched a thing of beauty -- I don't remember the details, but the Mariners offense was completely shut down.

To top it all off, he batted at the end of the game. He hadn't been throwing at our batters, so we didn't throw at him.

Clemens, who probably hadn't batted in years, hit a single. Bastard.
