PLAYERS: Roger Clemens
TEAMS: Houston Astros
((HT: ESPN)) Some folks think that Sugar Land Skeeters pitcher Roger Clemens pitched better than he did in his first start last month... Some folks think he is still a 50 year old trying to figure out if he wants to postpone the idea of getting elected in the Hall of Fame... His son, Koby, got to catch his dad. And Roger gave up two hits and struck out one along the way in a win over the Long Island Ducks... Here's some sampling of his handiwork this time around... Skeeters advisor Tal Smith thinks Clemens can pitch in the majors now, as does his wife Debbie... which, of course, is all the second opinion we need to see him back pitching in one of the Houston Astros last two home stands of the year... Right...???

My Feelings on the Lost 2012 season of my beloved Astros…

The other day, I wrote an e-mail to a co-worker. This guy actually writes guest blog posts for the Houston Chronicle, so after reading one of his posts debating whether the Astros have “bottomed out” (I sure as hell hope this season is “bottomed out” status”) I shot back a long winded rant/response, summary of my feelings toward this season. I am tired of hearing Red Sox...
