IMO,
Clemens is just stoking the flames a little.....I am sure he is trying to maximize his profits in exchange for a better chance @ a championship.....any contender that lands him will surely have the upper hand---if he can manage to stay healthy. He still might be the best pitcher in baseball....

wow. august already.

i don't know, shen; i think he's gonna pitch. don't know where but he certainly SEEMS not to be ruling out boston.

How much is nostalgia tugging at him to give it one last try in the place his legend began?

"Obviously, Boston is one of the teams I have a fondness for. It's really a home for me," said Clemens. "The other three teams are in the situation ... really every stop that I've been at, they've been great for me and I feel like I've in turn given them every bit of my effort. Again, I told Theo, I'm going to come up and watch a game or two before the summer gets too long and basically just get out of these guys' way."


Clemens, who has always consulted his family when it comes to his career, said that they'd warm to a return to Boston if that's what he chose to do.

"I can tell you that my two little ones are even warming up to that," Clemens said. "They're starting to make comments now that baseball season is getting under way. You can ask Deb, she had tears in her eyes watching the video they brought down, too. Boston is very special to us, no doubt about it."

Special enough to give up the comfort of retirement for another long grind through a baseball season? That is the question Clemens just can't answer at this point.

He has been impressed by his dealings with the Red Sox, a team that has a completely new front office and ownership than when he last pitched for the club.

"[Epstein] gets to the point, John Henry, the same thing, I totally understand it," Clemens said. "Like I said, it would be a huge commitment on my part, also. They're making a great commitment, and I appreciate it very much. Theo just said, 'I appreciate you coming by, I know you have decisions to make and we don't want to force your hand, but we're ready to talk if that door opens.' "

I agree...I think he will pitch, as well......I just think he will wait 'til around the all star break.....better idea of how the league is shaping up...
I would assume his only goal would be to win the series...what else does he have to prove!

Houston has no offense....that's a tough place..yet it is home...they won't win the series anyway...

Boston...definitely would have to wait until the weather gets really warm....
Honestly, I don't think the Sawx have very good defense this year...we will see how that works...He would be a MAJOR upgrade...especially with their offense!!

New York..they would/will outbid everyone...and with him...they would be tough to beat..

It's going to take me a long time to get used to seeing Damon in that uniform... though I'm sure that a 300+ average will speed up the process.

Is that Bucky frickin Dent?!?: Hate that guy!

Re: Clemens - agreed he'd be an asset to most teams, but can you even comprehend the size of the cohones it takes to think "Yeah, I'll start the season in June/July, for the low low price of $15 million"? OK, I have no idea about numbers, but I think he'll be looking for some bucks, don't you?

PS: Yanks win streak snapped at 1. Too early to be claiming the division title just yet... time will tell.

Honest question for you Yankees fans - who would you rather have Damon or Crisp? I'm hopeful that Crisp can match Damon's production from the past few years. Having Ortiz and Manny behind you can't hurt.
