Agreed. If the Sox sign Clemens, they'd definitely blow into luxury tax territory. Which I guess they figure they could justify since they would assume that signing him would give them a strong run at the World Series. But still seems odd.
In any case, the, "Will Clemens return to Boston?" was interesting in its first run. Now that it's on it's third(?) year, I'd rather see what was on the USA Network.
