The American League  beat the snot out of Roger Clemens  in the first inning last night and cruised to a 9-4 win, securing home-field advantage in the World Serious this year. Manny Ramirez  and Alfonso Soriano  hit homers off of Clemens . Later, Clemens returned to the field to be presented soemthing or other by Bud Selig. The Rocket, accompanied by his wife and four sons, looked mortified.
Meanwhile, the Randy Johnson  rumors are heating up. How about a three-way that would send Nomar to the Cubs, prospects to Arizona and Johnson to Boston?  What about the Mets  and the Yankees?  (The Bombers, lacking the sufficient minor league talent would need to include a third team for sure.) The Hot Stove is alive and well and it’s hotter than July. The Johnson hub-bub is expected to go down to the wire. The trading deadline is July 31st.
