Whither Rocket?

Watching the celebration prior to the final game at Yankee Stadium yesterday I thought it was churlish to have omitted any reference to Roger Clemens who went 83-37 in 5.5 seasons, won the Cy Young in 2001 and was a mainstay of this last Yankees dynasty. It was a long period of service comparatively but he brought a level of professionalism and intensity that should have been recognized. Boomer was there and so was Jimmy Key.

Also Joe Torre should have a more prominent mention no matter how things went last winter.

It's harbinger that the Boss has probably faded completely into the twilight and his sons don't share the same passion and sentiment that he had for the team.
