Another offseason, another Roger Clemens non-story. This time, we’ve been informed by his agents that he’ll begin his personal services contract with the Astros next year, but could still come back and pitch in a shortened season again. It sounds like the candidates would again be the Astros, Red Sox, and Yankees.
Even if the Rocket does retire, the Astros’ staff may get a boost from his tutelage. Perhaps he can help Wandy Rodriguez, Matt Albers, or Troy Patton take it to the next level.
