Clemens is taking the weekend to decide whether he'd like to pitch for the Astros, where he would join friend Andy Pettitte, he told local talk show hosts from KKRW-FM Radio.
Rumors have been circulating since Clemens announced his retirement that he would unretire and pitch near home for the Astros. Clemens is technically a free agent, and can sign with any major league team.
When Pettitte decided on the Astros Thursday, that likely added to Clemens' motivation. Clemens and Pettitte were best friends on the Yankees.
Clemens is seriously considering this (though the Astros haven't said anything about it yet), but he's concerned that the Yankees would take away his retirement gift - a Hummer. So KKRW has offered Clemens a new Hummer if he signs with the Astros.
May I have a word with you, Roger?
Go. Go play for the Astros. Come out of your two month retirement so you can crawl up Andy Pettitte's ass. Yankee fans treated you a lot better than you deserved, Roger. But that's ok, just turn around and give them all the finger on your way to Houston. I'm not like the rest of the New York fans, Roger. I expect this kind of behavior from you.
Oh, remember that little dilemma you had about which cap to wear when you are inducted into the Hall of Fame? Please spend enough years growing old and useless with teh Astros so you can wear that cap. You don't deserve to have the Yankee emblem on your head ever again.
Then again, I was never a fan of yours. I'm glad you retired. Now I no longer have to agonize over whether to hope my Yankees win or hope you lose.
And even if this is all a big hoax or joke and you don't end up playing for Houston, I still hate you. I hope your retirement sucks.
That is all.
