how much of this is because of the olympic team not qualifying for the olympics? and how much is because of Friendships with Andy P and Bagwell and being close to home vs spite of steinbrenner

Don't think spite of George has anything to do with it as supposedly they got along great. It was Pettitte and George who were always cool to each other. The reason for the latter is not fully understood, but probably goes back to Pettitte's problems in prior years and George's mouthing off about dealing him.

What CLemens is doing I think has more to do with a more convenient way to make some significant dough. 5+M and he is near home and plays with his buddy. Think it comes down to that, though it will be interpreted in Yankee-land as a snub to us and I think it is fair to say any post-career relationship and/or honors Clemens might have gotten from the Yankees went out the door when he signed that contract. George will take it personally and many Yankee fans will take it as an affront because he went back on his word.

False reports indicate he and Michael Jordan had a long talk over the weekend.

Seriously, I don't know much about the whole Red Sox/Yankees/Clemens history. I do know that whenever Clemens comes to Chicago, I am there as close as I can get. Say what you must about his off-the-field relationships, I'm glad he is still in the game. He is still has some left in the tank and he is the ultimate competitor. I hope he does well in whatever capacity he chooses. I can't wait until he faces the Mets in Shea and better yet, he will be in Wrigley for at least two starts this year. That's going to be a great season series.

He's not the first athlete to un-retire. Ask Michael Jordan!

As for as him going to bat, I'll bet he won't be the worst hitting pitcher in the league.

I think it's a good move for the Astros. Makes the race with the Cubbies very interesting. :-)
