Clemens to pitch for Sugar Land

Word is all over Twitter that Roger Clemens has joined the Sugar Land Skeeters, and will pitch on Saturday night, with the Astros in New York to play the Mets.

So the question is: Will Sugar Land outdraw an Astros game? Keep in mind, the Astros have only enjoyed eight games with over 30,000 in attendance: Opening Day, all three Rangers games, inter-league games against the Royals (?) (!) and Indians, and games against the Pirates and Dodgers. They've had seven games with attendance under 15,000.

So what do you say? How many 2012 Astros home games will the Skeeters game outdraw?

The Dodgers game was the Colt 45 t-shirt give away. The Royals game was a get away day game (and I think we only scheduled 2 this year), and the Indians and Pirates games were both Faith & Family nights. So at least we know why people are showing up this season...

Considering the total capacity of Constellation Field is 7,500, I'm going to see zero.

Apparently Astros scouted him and are considering signing him for September. Makes sense if Astros are going to shut down Lucas Harrell and it would be good for attendance

He may need a shot or two before he pitches
