The Astros: The Return of the Rocket

All eyes are on Minute Maid Park today where Roger Clemens will once again take the mound for the Houston Astros.

The Rocket in a June 1st news conference:

"I can get into a game situation and my body not respond like I want it to," he said. "I pushed my body hard, but I still need to get some competitive innings, stressful innings. I call them stressful innings because, at my age, it's stressful."

"I'm not riding around in the back of a convertible, waving my hat and selling tickets," he said. "They expect me to get on the field and win ballgames and do it the way they're used to seeing me do it"

Sounds excited to be back, doesn't' he?
