Astros owner: Clemens may pitch

HOUSTON

Astros owner Jim Crane thinks Roger Clemens’ comeback could continue in Houston. That would be news to the 50-year-old right-hander, who doesn’t sound too interested in the idea.

Crane said Monday there’s a possibility Clemens could pitch this season for the majors’ worst team.

“We haven’t heard from Roger, so that’s still up in the air,” he said.

The last-place Astros started a weeklong homestand on Monday that includes three games against the Cubs and four against the Phillies. Their only remaining home games after this stretch are against the Pirates and the Cardinals — two teams in postseason contention.

Crane said he would not pitch the seven-time Cy Young Award winner against a contender, which leaves this week as the only option.

But Clemens said Monday night the only way he would pitch this season was against a team in contention.

“I can tell you right now and they would know too, that if I was going to go do it, I am going to pitch against a contender, that’s who I want to knock out,” Clemens said.
