Clemens has a funky clause in his contract


Recommended Posts

Feb. 6 - Could Roger Clemens ultimately end up back with the Yankees? Newsday reports that if the Astros fall out of the race this season, Clemens has an agreement with owner Drayton McLane to waive his no-trade clause and go back to New York.


It's not known whether he would accept a deal elsewhere, like Boston, but the Rocket isn't going to speak publicly about something that's supposed to be top secret, Newsday indicated. Clemens became the highest paid pitcher in major league history on Jan. 21 when the seven-time Cy Young Award winner agreed to a one-year, $18 million deal.

Let him go back to the Yankees, he'll take an ego hit not being their go to guy and was showing signs of slowing down his last 2 seasons. I think it's a mistake if he leaves the NL.


Hmmm....this sounds alot like Pedro...slowing down, ego hits, mistakes....


But Roger hasnt slowd much...you dont slow down when you win CY's.

Exactly. Who are they gonna trade for him?




Knowing the Yankees maybe one of their young starters that's going through a tough period.
