Roger Clemens

William Roger Clemens (born August 4, 1962 in Dayton, Ohio), nicknamed "The Rocket", is one of the preeminent Major League baseball pitchers of the 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s, and is widely considered to be one of the greatest pitchers of all time. He has won seven Cy Young Awards two more than any other pitcher. He throws and bats right-handed, and currently is a free agent at the end of the 2006 season at the age of 44.
Clemens made his debut with the Boston Red Sox, where he played for 13 seasons, after which then-Red Sox General Manager Dan Duquette famously pronounced the pitcher to be in "the twilight of his career." Clemens then signed with the Toronto Blue Jays. In two seasons with the Blue Jays, he made a comeback as he won the pitching triple crown (leading the league in wins, ERA and strikeouts) and the Cy Young award each year. He was traded to the New York Yankees for the 1999 season, where he would have his first World Series success. He won his 300th game in 2003, a rare accomplishment for modern pitchers, and is one of just four pitchers to surpass 4,000 strikeouts. He is currently second on the all-time list behind only Nolan Ryan. After retiring from the Yankees, he changed his mind and returned in 2004 with the Houston Astros, where he has remained a top tier pitcher.
