Roger Clemens: So Not Worth It
Still pissed off that Roger Clemens spurned the Astros to return to the Yankees?
Actually, any baseball fan already knows the Rocket sucked this year. But Darren Rovell, a sports-business reporter for CNBC, broke things down with a vengeance.
Add in the luxury tax foisted on the Yanks for their bloated payroll, and this is the return they got on the Clemens contract:
Per Pitch: $15,047 Per Inning: $245,213 Per Start: $1,375,921 Per Win: $4,127,763
A quarter-million per inning? Imagine what he’d get if he was any good. – Richard Connelly
