Take it with a grain of salt, but Roger Clemens said today in a radio interview that he told his son "80-20 that I wasn’t going to play." He also said: "I’m not leaving anybody hanging. I don’t want to play."
The thing is, he is leaving everyone hanging. Leaving someone hanging is delaying a decision about something. As long as he leaves that door open 20% to play baseball, he’s leaving the Astros, Yankees, Red Sox, and baseball fans hanging. If I ask a girl on a date, and she says there’s a 20% chance she’ll go but she’ll get back to me in a few months…actually I would take that as a no. Never mind.
