Maddux, Clemens and the Media

Much has been made in the sports media of the Maddux/Clemens matchup aka “The 300-somethings” on Friday.

Not so much has been made of the combined season total of wins of both pitchers going into Friday’s game.

That would be a long skinny one.

As you probably know by now, the Cubs and Maddux won. I found the trailer to ESPN’s coverage of the game rather weird. Something to the effect of Maddux won Friday’s game but Clemens gets bragging rights.

This was due to Clemens going 2-2 against Maddux.

As Clemens made very clear in his post-game interview, that’s not why he’s being paid. At least he understands that if the media doesn’t.
