Unlike many others hiding behind anonymity, Blue Jays manager Cito Gaston will come right out and say how he really feels about Roger Clemens. Get your pens ready, scribes, and print this: "He's an asshole."
Now, don't mince words, Cito. Tell me what you think about Roger?
"He's a complete asshole."
Now, you're just saying that to me, though, right, Cito? You wouldn't say that to his face. Not loudly, at least!
"And I'll say that loud, right in his face. It was all about him. Ain't about nobody else but him."
You're fiery! But did he at least support his teammates?
When he's pitching, everyone's in the dugout pulling for him, but when he's not pitching he's not in the dugout.
But DID HE support his teammates?
I didn't feel like he supported his teammates as much as he wanted support.
But did he ever confront you?
"He wouldn't (confront me)."
Hmm. Strange. How about an ass whupin'? Did you ever consider giving him an ass whupin'?
"One of us would have had an ass whuppin' that day..."
Yeah, but Roger's a big dude. And you're — well, you're Cito! Cuddly Cito!
"It might have been me..."
Heavens to Betsy!
"...but he still would have known I was there."
Fucking right, Cito!
