Melky ``no'', Clemens ``yes''

| No Comments | No TrackBacks


Two former New York Yankees are in the news for different reasons: Melky Cabrera and Roger Clemens.
Manager Joe Girardi had a cryptic ``no comment'' when asked about Cabrera, who was suspended for 50 games last week after testing positive for testosterone.
But he did comment on news that Clemens, 50, would be pitching this weekend for an independent minor league team near his Houston home.
``The guy loves to play. He still feels he can pitch. God bless him. He's always loved to play and kept coming back [after injuries in his career.]''
Clemens was acquitted recently in a high profile trial alleging he lied to Congress about steroid use. He is scheduled to pitch for the Sugar Land Skeeters of the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball.
