Rocket Pitches Tonight to Keep US Alive

Roger 3.16

'''He's more like Jesus than I thought,' said Chipper Jones, when asked about the legend of Roger Clemens. 'There will be guys talking smack in the clubhouse and Roger walks in and . . . it's like the parting of the Red Sea. He's like E.F. Hutton; when he speaks, people listen.'" -- 3.16.06, Nick Cafardo, Boston Globe

Clemens the Class of Classic

'''When Roger says, 'Let's get it on,' you know he means business. It's time for all of us to get serious,' [Chipper] Jones said. 'It's going to be a great honor for me to play third base [against Mexico] with Roger on the mound. It'll be one of those things I can tell my grandchildren -- that I played with Roger Clemens. Just being able to throw the ball back to him and the possibility it might be his last start, just thinking about that gives me chills.'" -- 3.16.06, Nick Cafardo, Boston Globe

Schilling is an avid video game enthusiast logging countless hours playing multiple EverQuest II characters simultaneously on an elaborate four-monitor computer system. The baseball great says playing online video games is a nice break from spring training and an excellent way to keep in touch with his kids while on the road.  Schilling recently signed an endorsement deal with Sony Online Entertainment, creators of EverQuest II.
