Just when it looked as though Pete Rose was finally riding off into the sunset, along comes his replacement.
I don't mean a replacement for Rose as the Major League Baseball's all-time hitting champ.
No, I mean as a replacement for Rose as the Major League Baseball player who won't admit to his cruddy behavior and salvage a small piece of his reputation.
The replacement is one of the most talented players of his time, who crossed into prohibited territory but whose ego won't allow him to 'fess up.
Of course I'm talking about Roger Clemens.
