08:09 AM ET 08.30 | Roger Clemens left the door open last week, and it appears he'll walk through it. [Clemens] is planning a second start for the Sugar Land Ske eters and he expects it to be on Sept. 7. In a text message to FOX 26 Sports, Clemens said he and the Skeeters are planning for his next start to be a week from Friday against the Long Island Ducks at Constellation Field. Skeeters President Matt OBrien told FOX 26 Sports the club is not in position to confirm anything at this point. Clemens was impressive in his return to professional baseball for the first time since 2007 when he started for the Skeeters on Saturday. He threw 3 1/3 innings of scoreless baseball.

Isn't this all about him wanting to get an out pitching in MLB this year so he can avoid going on the Hall of Fame ballot this year?
He'd be on the ballot with other 'roid users like Barry Bonds and Sammy Sosa I believe, and is not likely to get enough votes with his own steroid issues so fresh in the voters' minds.
If he pitches in the majors this year, his eligibility for HOF is delayed another five years, by which time he hopes to have the juicing issue behind him in the memory of voters for the HOF.
Will be interesting to see if any MLB owner is silly enough to give that postponment.

But he's too stupid to spell excrement, or understand what it means. So I kept it simple for him.

How can they call this stuff professional baseball when all of the players are just younger versions of Clemons who think they can play with anybody but they can't.

That's exactly what he's doing...Clemens has a plan. If he doesn't come back this year, next for sure and that knocks him back again for 5 years on the ballot.

Of course he's planning another start. Ego is an extermely powerful thing. And he probably thnks he has been completely vindicated. Think again, Rocket. And just be grateful that you are not going to jail.

I'll bet the Astros would be willing to accomodate him, too.
