"He looked good," said Astros general manager Jeffrey Luhnow. "And I haven't said those words about one of our players for an entire year. So, yeah, we'd be more than interested in having him on our team."
Houston is already eliminated from the National League Central and is 48 games under .500 on pace to lose 112 games.
"Obviously, at his age, recovery time will probably be an issue for him," said Luhnow. "We'll see how he feels in a day or two. If he feels okay, we'd be happy to have him start every game he wants to and also bat cleanup for us. Right now or cleanup hitter is a person called Ben Francisco, a fact which makes me cry whenever I acknowledge it."
Clemens says he still hasn't decided if he wants to return to the Astros.
I'm sure that guy could've talked out of his ass like most guests.
Mmmmmm cow steroids.
Tommy John isn't the only athlete with a surgery named after him.
Here are a few others.
Roger Clemens was once regarded as one of the greatest pitchers of all-time. Now he is charged with lying before Congress.
Let's take a look at his life in pictures.
According to reports, Roger Clemens will enter federal prison as a member of the Boston Red Sox, picking the team he spent 13 years of his 24-year career over the Yankees, Astros and Blue Jays.
"We knew this day would come," said Clemens' attorney, Rusty Hardin. "We just thought it would be for the Hall of Fame."
Despite a strained relationship with his former team, Clemens forged his baseball career in Boston.
"Roger won three of his seven Cy Young awards with Boston," said his wife, Debbie. "At the same time, he started using steroids in Toronto and really had them pay off in New York and Houston. So it was a tough call for him. He's lost a lot of sleep over this decision. Also because I think he's scared of going to prison."
Clemens is facing more than a year in a federal penetentiary if convicted of lying before Congress. While he may wear a Red Sox hat to prison, it will immediately be seized by prison officials.
"That would be considered contraband," said a guard at a federal penitentiary. "He would have to wear standard prison attire like every other inmate because those are the rules and also for his own protection. Most people hate the Red Sox and would probably try to kill him. Hell, I'd probably shank him myself and I barely even follow baseball."
