Crane would welcome back Clemens

Roger Clemens has a 10-year personal services contract with the Astros, and Jim Crane would welcome Clemens to start that contract whenever he's ready.

First: Before you get outraged about this possibility, would you really deny someone the right to honor a contract that the Astros offered?

Second: What if it pissed Bud Selig right off? Then how would you feel?

I don't have a single solitary problem with Roger Clemens coming back for the personal services contract with the Astros - sure, he has plenty of money (presuming Rusty Hardin didn't siphon off 75% of Clemens' wealth for Bangs Maintenance) - but the guy has a right to work.

And if it makes Selig upset, I'm even more in favor.

Yep, I think I might be fine with it for reason #2 alone.

Yeah, I was on the fence, but #2.

I think I would get behind anything the Astros did if it pissed off Bud Selig.
