With the exception of a couple of locales (and we know what those are) the ballpark matters little if the pitcher is great. And last year, Clemens was sensational.
That said, I think he's a poor risk this year. Might not be in typical Rocket shape based on spring maladies, and the Astros are not goin to be very good. The setup guys in front of Lidge are brutal, which likely means a few less wins for all the starters.
Is he worth an 87th pick in a stnd. 5 x 5 roto league?
No way of answering this properly. I'd say yes if you struck out on getting one of the perceived elite with an earlier selection, but I'd probably go in another direction if you have already landed one or two top starters.
