Foot loose


The Astros declined to offer arbitration to Roger Clemens.

I didn't think they had the balls.

Don't get me wrong, I've already said I'd like (or would have liked) for him to return. But another offseason of butt-kissing one player who might not come back anyway? Thank goodness we're not playing that tune again.

And one of the writers at SI thinks that it's all a ploy, anyway, to allow Clemens to only pitch basically the second half (he "retires," we sign him in May, and he starts playing sometime thereafter). Stranger things have happened.

If he does truly retire, or can get more money and more concessions elsewhere, good for him.

And thanks for the memories.
