Completely agree. There would be people with pitchforks outside Bonds' house if he did something like that, but Clemens is a "family man" so its OK. I suppose it's not quite that simple, since Clemens only would pitch once every 5 games anyway, and he perceived as coming out of retirement to do this so it's like he's doing the Astros a favor by even being there. Those are terrible, absolutely miserable arguments, but its tempting to succumb to them when your context is what a "family man" Clemens is and what a jerk Bonds is. I hate that phrase, "family man," if anyone couldn't tell.
