Barks and Bites: Rusty Hardin must be asleep at the wheel again because surely he would be trotting this out today: Clemens probably never set foot in Fort Myers in 1991, according to ABC 7 News in Fort Myers. The Daily News has been reporting that country star Mindy McCready met Clemens at a Fort Myers karaoke bar in '91, but the Red Sox were still in Winter Haven that spring and Clemens probably didn't make the trip to play the Twins because he did not pitch the one time the Sox visited Fort Myers. In the meantime, the Daily News continues to crush Clemens, with Mike Lupica doing the honors today. The Herald reports that Roger made a local pitch to a waitress at the Palace as well back in the day. And he didn't tip or pay his bar tabs to boot. He wasn't quite Jon Lester last night but old friend Joel Pineiro pitched 7 innings of one-hit ball for the Cardinals. And very old friend Ron Mahay picked up a win for the Royals as well. From his appearance on WEEI's D&C today: The President of Red Sox Nation will open a Jerry Remy's Sports Bar in the old WBCN building on Boylston Street. He hopes to be up and running for the '09 home opener. Further down Boylston Street, it looks like there's another green monster in town. has a nice feature on the radio voice of the Red Sox, Dave O'Brien.

The short goodbye: So long Lobie.
