I'm with BravesGuy on this one. I'm thinking he won't retire.

Clemens

As for being one of the greatest pitchers ever . Yes he is.
But for all his greatness on the baseball diamond, the man has no class. He's always been an idiot. I'm tired of these false retirements. Either play or quit. :-t

I think he's gone, he's still effective but his body is in pain and it won't get better very easily. That and he wants to spend time with his family, although there have been reports that he wants to stay to see his son in the majors, but I doubt that will happen.

Clemens has always been about the money first. Everything else is secondary to him and it will come down to whether the Astros want to pony up another 18-20 M for one more year. Clemens is not turning down that type of cash.

If I were Houston, I'd be hoping that Clemens comes back. Maybe I woudn't if it were October, but with most of the big name FAs already off the board, there really isn't another tremendous use of that extra cash.

Unless they could somehow swing a deal for a big bat, like Dunn, which I guess is always possible. :-?

I'll bet my house he comes back. There is no way in hell someone as competitive as Clemens retires after putting together a great season like 2005 at his age. Most players dream about keep playing and he still has plenty in the tank. The team almost won a championship as well and he probably wants a ring with them.
