Which situation is a more plausible one? ;-)

So what you're saying is that you respond to threads without reading them? ;-)

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Well, I read the entire thread up until that post. Isn't that good enough? :-b

Well, I wouldn't have asked it if I didn't.

No doubt he will come back regardless of what happens in the WS. You don't pitch an entire season with an ERA under 2.00 at 40+ and not come back. Especially for a competitor like Clemens.

I agree with Amazinz. I think he's done after the WS. Period. His last several outings have not been typical Clemens outings. I think his physical condition (age) are finally catching up to him. His hamstring miseries caused him to be pulled very early last night, and he has not gotten over them. I think he's done. The only thing that might bring him back, as has been pointed out, is the allure of playing with his son next year.

I think he comes back, yet again with Houston.

He's got a good thing going with them where he stays home on some road trips and he's a guy that I don't think can walk away.

I say he's done, but I've been wrong before about this, and I wouldn't be suprised if I was wrong again.

If Houston ponies up 15M+ next season, Clemens will be back. Clemens always goes for the cash and there is nothing to indicate he will allof a sudden turn down money.

My first thought was no way he will come back win or lose but then after reading some posts and thinking about it, if I was him I would come back.

Reasons:

1. 15+ million
2. Potential to play with son
3. Still damn good
4. Tack on another 15ish wins on the 341 he has now....
5. Playing for his home team

6. 15+ million
7. Still damn good

I would put it at about 60/40 he stays.
