Don't look now but the Rocket could be landing on the hill at Minute Maid Park sooner than you think.
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.
But Crane said he would not pitch the seven-time Cy Young Award winner against a contender, which leaves this week as the only option.
Clemens pitched 3 1-3 scoreless innings in his first start for Sugar Land of the independent Atlantic League, and didn't allow a run in 4 2-3 innings in his second start Friday.
The Rocket's fastball was clocked at as high as 88 mph, and he also threw curves and splitters in his starts for the Skeeters.
But it seems he isn't sure if his stuff is major league ready at this point.
Clemens has indicated that the chances of a return were slim but he didn't completely rule it out even after his most recent appearance with the Skeeters.
