From The Daily Texan -
Someone ought to give Roger Clemens a call – namely his former Houston Astros, New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox teammates.
The seven-time Cy Young Award winner isn’t sure if or where he will pitch this season, but the decision may come down to who’s on the other end of the line.
“If somebody makes a phone call, and I think I can do it again physically, I probably could,” the former Texas Longhorn said Saturday after throwing out the ceremonial first pitch at the school’s alumni game at the Dell Diamond.
“The only reason why I’d continued to play was because of my teammates calling me,” he said. “Guys made the phone call to get me back out of the house to play.”
“I don’t know what’s going to happen tomorrow. I’ll make that decision when it comes,” Clemens said. “I’m in good shape, but I’m nowhere near baseball shape. Mentally, it’s going to be another challenge for me.”

It looks like he can afford to lose 20 pounds. Time to break out the B-12 shots?
In any event, I wonder if any Yankees are working the phones to get Rocket to come out and play?
