Brian McTaggart reports that manager Bo Porter ripped the Astros players today for being disrespectful to Roger Clemens, who was visiting camp to speak to Astros player. The source of the disrespect: not being ready at 9am for the meeting.
Read McTaggart’s post for the details — it seems like guys were lollygagging to get dressed and stuff before their visitor arrived — and also for Porter’s description of the daily 9AM meeting. Which he calls “synergistic chemistry lab.”
Synergistic chemistry lab.
Synergistic. Chemistry. Lab. Really.
