Looks like Clemens is calling it quits.

while he hasn't declared it yet, it doesn't look like he'll be back this season. If he's talking about potentially getting an urge in May, it suggests that the urge clearly isn't there now.

Unlucky for anyone with Clemens in their roster...

My thoughts are that he will wait for a clear contender and jump on around the all star break to give himself the best chance of pitching in a World series again..

Can't see him giving it up for good. His stuff is still too good, and he is way too competitive to sit at home and watch. He will want in at some point this season. I don't think he will quit until he has too. Not w/ the intensity he has always displayed, guys like that are leaders and can't sit back and watch.

Clemens says he'll probably retire and then goes and visits the Texas Rangers training camp 2 days later...yeah right! He'll be back in June sometime(July at the latest).

Yeah I read that later last night too. I thought that was funny, it sounds like he really likes Texas. He has family in Texas and plans to spend a lot of time there. He cant stay away from the game.

Yeah he just wants the month at home I think he has a kid graduating high school or somethin. He can kick back after the WBC then get the most money from the team that is most likely to make the series. The WBC and an entire season is demanding for a guy his age. I'd do the same thing if I were him.

from what i read, he basically said he intended to retire after the wbc, but he was going to see what kind of shape he was in afterwards and wouldnt even think of returning till may/june (leaving the window open for the astros). but he pitched lights out friday.
he also said how much he would like to play with michael young and mark teixiera, whom are on team usa.
and rangers owner tom hicks was at fridays game with bud selig to watch clemens pitch.... it really seems like the rangers are in the race for real.

honestly, i think clemens comes back. and it will be for the astros or rangers, my money is on the astros

He increases his bargaining position by saying he might retire...as for friday South Africa had a couple 18yr old kids playing. Maybe South Africa was as good as some college teams.
