Druggies Roger Clemens and Andy Pettitte to honor Derek Jeter in Houston. Is that the right way? Wednesday, April 2, 2014
Today before the fourth and final game against the Brewers (Gee, where does that name come from?) two Brewers were sent out to embrace Jeter during a brief ceremony: Ryan Braun and Carlos Gomez.

Gomez made peace with new Yankee catcher Brian McCann before game one Thursday. Their 2013 confrontation was visited in this post:
Brian McCann is an asshole and Yanks should not sign him. Monday, November 25, 2013
In game three Gomez led off with a long home run off CC Sabathia. Gomez mocked McCann in a way that McCann could not protest. Gomez raced around the bases. I would have loved it if Gomez had completed his mock by sliding into home.
Major Baseball League (MBL) commissioner Allen Huber "Bud" Selig made a fortune as dual owner of the Brewers and commissioner during the steroid era. Now his outgoing golden boy is being honored by players who violated Selig's drug policy. Hypocrisy doesn't get much thicker than this.
