NEW YORK - The Yankees snubbed Roger Clemens during their pregame positional montages Sunday night, leaving out the 11-time All-Star when they introduced the top pitchers in the organization's history.
Clemens meant enough to the Yankees last May for them to sign him to a prorated $28-million contract and announce his return from the owner's box at Yankee Stadium.
But his alleged use of steroids and inclusion in the Mitchell Report apparently soured the Yankees on Clemens enough that they forgot about his six seasons in pinstripes and two world championships.
Chuck Knoblauch, who was also mentioned in the Mitchell Report, was included among second baseman.
