The Injurious Postseason History of Sir Roger Clemens

Check out this unofficial history of postseason "injuries" suffered by Roger Clemens. Pretty intriguing, to say the least. And I seem to recall blister rumors about game 6 in 1986. Anyone else?

Clemens is the kid who showed up at your playground with a ball when you really needed one. You let him play only because he had the ball. Then, when he started losing or things went against him, he took his ball and went home. We all hated That Kid when we were on the playground.

He hasn't changed. Now, though, he fakes an injury and limps off the field, claiming he tweaked his hammy or the wind was blowing too hard. Take your ball and go home, Roger.
