You gotta be kidding me....
Here's a classy quote from the article:
"They say I've done too much. What'd he accomplish? ... The players they put on the field nowadays, they couldn't make it in my day. They'd get sent back to Triple-A."
Maybe the O's will pick him up. Sounds like a move they'd make.

I'm happy to hear it. He just needs 3 more home runs to become only the second major leaguer to have at least 3000 hits, 300 home runs, and 300 stolen bases. He'll be the first to do it without a cloud hanging over his career record. One guess as to who the other one is.
Go Rickey. I'm rooting for you.
I didn't realize that. Why in the world did he quit before reaching that mark?
I really don't mind Henderson, and he was admittedly awesome.
After you posted that, I must admit I'm pulling for the guy too.
The difference between Henderson and Clemens is--
1) great starting pitchers are hard to find... a lot harder to find than center fielders.
and 2) Clemens is still playing at an All-star level. Henderson is not.
