Lots of banter out there regarding Roger Clemens being traded to the Rangers. I'm sure this will piss many people off, but I've never really liked the Rocket. Part of it I'm sure is due to the fact he went to that cow school in Austin, though that was way before I cared about such things. Much of it also has to do with my hatred of the Yankees, so wearing pin stripes and having been to cow U is a double whammy. When I think of Clemens though, the image of him throwing the bat at Piazza always comes to mind. Not only could he not explain why he did it (umm, I thought it was the ball???? - yeah right) he didnt even get penalized for it. Seems like the league has always had a pro-Clemens bias. But depending on how much the Rangers would have to give up in exchange, acquiring Clemens is definitely an intriguing idea, one that I'd be for in spite of his history. But as we know, this wouldn't be the first time Tom Hicks has tried to land the Rocket.

Rocket isn't landing here; Astros owner won't do it, but what if...
Clemens isnt worth selling the farm for
Its not Rocket science
