Clemens Using Rangers… Again.

Rangers owner Tom Hicks can’t get enough of Roger Clemens using him.

Hicks tried before to get the Longhorn Ex only to see him angle a deal to play for the New York Yankees.

Clemens made a visit to Rangers Camp in Surprise on Thursday. All he needed was Jerry Maguire around to shout, “Show me the money!”, since that is the only way the future Hall of Fame pitcher will wear a Rangers uniform on a very part-time basis in 2006.

GM Jon Daniels came up with a really nice stat that says on the days he pitched for Houston last year and on the days he pitched for the Rangers his record would have been 24-3 because of the run support the Rangers would have given him. Hicks says it would have won Clemens his 8th Cy Young Award with a 24-3 mark.

Nice way to twist things. Clemens went to the World Series with his hometown team last fall. I’m guessing that would’ve trumped going 24-3 and watching the postseason.

I’m not buying Clemens to Texas. Hicks needs to stop chasing Clemens and start spending more cash for top flight pitching.
