Clemens gets an offer
He could have millions of dollars to return to pitch for the Red Sox, Astros, Yankees or Rangers. But the independent league Brockton Rox have another idea for Roger Clemens. The Rox, who start their season May 25, today made a decidedly tongue-in-cheek offer to the future Hall of Fame pitcher, who is taking a couple of months off while he decides what uniform to wear in his 23rd season -- assuming he comes back to pitch at all.
The Rox -- where Clemens' former Red Sox teammate Oil Can Boyd once pitched after leaving the bigs -- list several "advantages" that Clemens would enjoy if he pitches in indy ball. My favorite: "He's got a really good chance of breaking his record of 20 strikeouts in a game and throwing his first no-hitter ... every time on the mound."
