:yawn: It's gonna be too late for the Astros to catch up by the time Clemens makes up his mind.

Re: Clemens coming back with...

god I am really sick of Roger Clemens. 2003 was supposed to be his last year. Then he decided to come back ofr another year. Then he waited and decided for another one. Now another one! Honeslt, he sohuld just retire already. I mean he really has nothing left to prove, and he is just hurting his legacy by doing this. I understnad the whole "love for the game aspect" but isnt this just a little too much? He is taking valuable playing time away from other Astros prospects.

Done deal. One year - $ 22 million contract, prorated down to about 13 million over the remainder of the season. Clemens is scheduled to make 3 minor league starts before joining the Astros.

Good luck Roger. The YANKEES didn't need you.

Re: Clemens coming back with...

Clearly post-season play is not important to Clemens.

Quote:
Fifteen teams in the major leagues have better records than Houston. Three of those teams are the Boston Red Sox, New York Yankees and Texas Rangers, Clemens' other suitors. While a team's record at the end of May counts for nothing, it generally provides a baseline for a team's success.

In on base-plus-slugging percentage, New York ranks fourth, Boston fifth and Texas seventh. Houston is 22nd. In earned-run average, the Yankees are ninth, the Rangers 11th and the Red Sox 18th. The Astros are 20th.

Numbers only begin to tell the story. The Yankees and Red Sox are tied atop the American League East, and the Rangers lead the AL West. The Astros are in third place in the National League Central, already 6 games behind first-place St. Louis, and have the entire NL West, plus Cincinnati, Philadelphia and Atlanta to deal with for the wild card.

If it really was about winning, Clemens could have gone back to New York, where he won two World Series, and stabilized a rotation in need of a stopper.
