No news is good news

Roger Clemens hasn't said that he will come out of retirement to pitch for the Astros next season, but he hasn't said he won't, either. He's expected to make his decision known sometime in January - right now, he's going to stay in shape in order to be able to pitch batting practice to his son Koby's high-school baseball team. (What I wouldn't give to be on that particular team - we had team practice yesterday and we hit against a machine, but it must be pretty nice to turn up to practice and know that Roger Clemens is going to be on the mound...).
