Does Clemens retire if Houston wins?

Just thinking... he'd really have nothing left to do in the game.

I think he's done whether or not they win the WS but I wouldn't bet money on it.
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

I think he would. He already has a ring, but winning with a Texan team will probably leave him more than happy.

He would probably be done, even tho i have no idea. his age is finally starting to show and his mother died recently. i think he finally does what he's been wanting to do for a while, hang up his uniform and be with his family.

I say he's done. Not because he can't get it done he obviously can. Winning a WS with Houston was the only reason he came back.

I have to think he's done after this, and DEFINITELY if they win. He just has nothing left to accomplish.
The odds of the AL MVP coming from the American League are looking pretty good.

I'm going to say no, I mean he can still make about 20 million by staying around next year.

Don't you think he is in it for more than the money by now.... I think he's got enough money.

Yeah I think he calls it quits. He's pretty much done everything, but I wouldn't be suprised if he comes back for another season.
