Rocket’s red glare in Beijing?

Heard some interesting speculation this week that Roger Clemens would seek to pitch for Team USA in the Olympics in August.

Clemens pitched for the U.S. in the WBC and no doubt would love to pitch in the Olympics. Plus by subjecting himself to their drug-testing program, he would further distance himself from the Mitchell Report.

If Clemens pitched well in the Olympics, it will be interesting to see if any team adds him to their roster for the pennant race. The Olympic tournament ends Aug. 23, just the right time for the Rocket to be added to a roster.

This is total speculation, but I bet we haven’t seen the last of him.

Meanwhile, the Texas high school baseball coaches association decided to invite Clemens to speak at their convention after all.

Mike Wallace is scheduled to sit down with Clemens at his home later this week. The interview will be on 60 Minutes on Sunday.
