Clemens to Enter the Hall of Fame (No, Not the One In NY)

The Red Sox announced their Class of 2014 for the team's Hall of Fame: Nomar Garciaparra, Pedro Martinez, Joe Castiglione, and the one sure to cause plenty of controversy: Roger Clemens.

The four were chosen by an 16-person committee of media, club executives, and baseball historians.

We don't have to rehash anything about Clemens, as it is well-documented. Clemens has been seen at Fenway a number of times over the recent years, and appears to be building bridges with the team since his acrimonious exit by free agency in 1996.

It will be interesting to see what kind of reception he gets from the fans during the ceremony, of which a date has not yet been announced by the team.

In far more unsettling news, Curt Schilling announced Wednesday that he is suffering from cancer. He would not elaborate as to what the cancer is or how far along he is.

I wish all the best, and hope he wins this fight against this insidious disease.
