Now Pitching for the Yankees: Roger Clemens


Roger Clemens is a Yankee.

With those five words, displayed on the video screen at Yankee Stadium in a surprise announcement during the seventh-inning stretch on Sunday, the 44-year-old right-hander ended all the speculation and confirmed his return to the Bronx.

Public-address announcer Bob Sheppard instructed the crowd to draw its attention to the owner's box and the video screen, where Clemens, holding a microphone, drew a loud ovation from the crowd at the game between the Mariners and Yankees.

"It's a privilege to be back," Clemens said. "I'll be talking to you all soon."

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman was not immediately available for comment, but further official announcements are expected shortly.

    This is good. though I was more worried about why Robinson Cano wasn't playing in this game than whether the Rocket wanted to be back

    Cano is in a batting slump and Miguel Cairo has a good history against Jared Washburn.
