Thats championship pitching... and with the way Boston is playing right now, may be his best shot for another championship.
With the Yanks completely healthy...
I just don't see the dominance in that rotation.
And Houston is where his heart is, and a terrible division.

Obviously its a big maybe, because it depends on Beckett and Dice-K's careers, but it might turn out to be one of the best in history when you look back 10 years from now, who knows.
The point is Clemens obviously wants to win a WS. And the Sox will give him the best chance.

All that him coming to Boston could do would be to screw up our chemistry in exchange for a little starting pitching depth. I really think we're fine with Schill, Beckett, Dice-K, Wakefield, and Lester as our starters with Tavarez and Snyder as injury backups/spot starters if necessary. There's no reason to pay $10 milion for a #4 guy in our rotation who's still risk. Although if you look at his stats, his ERA was 2.30 last year. That's pretty good....
Hmm, it wouldn't be horrible if the Sox grabbed him (and I'd like to see them grab him if they have to to keep him off the Yankees), but I also won't be too angry if they send him to Houston. Lester and Wakefield are fine at the back end of the rotation....
