Rotoworld mentioned the Yankees, Red Sox or Rangers as possibilities. Those are probably the only teams he'd go to, IMO. Of course, that's just an assumption.
You can't expect Clemens to decide if he wants to play before he's ready, but he really puts a vice on the 'Stros, who can't spend money on anyone else for a long time while he decides. I think they have to move on and try to improve the team as if he isn't going to be there. Maybe he'll take a pay cut and play for them later on, but that probably isn't likely.
