The Astro front office made a big mistake on this one. Despite being 43-years-old, Roger Clemens is still one of the most dominating pitchers in the game. He's lead the league in ERA for the past few years and still pitches better than most guys half his age. A sure Hall of Famer through and through.
If Houston is lucky, they could pick him back up in May as long as the Rocket doesn't retire or another team doesn't pick him up. The Astro organization doesn't deserve to be so fortunate, since they showed a total lack of respect to one of the great legends.

What I have heard is that Clemens has not yet decided whether or not he will retire.

Don't think the Astros dropped the ball... they just did what they needed to do. In fact, Clemens is really making things hard on the Astros because, without knowing if they still have their #1 guy, their hands are tied.

According to the Boston Globe, the Red Sox have communicated with Roger Clemens' agents, the Hendricks brothers, to express their interest in getting back the Rocket if he decides to play in 2006. I wonder what Clemens thinks about this, since he had a falling out with the BoSox before they parted ways. He even said once that he would prefer to go into the Hall of Fame as a Yankee. I sure hope that Roger has changed his mind and goes back to the Sox. Most of his glory years--not to mention his records-- were done in Boston.
