Here's one nobody saw coming: Roger Clemens is making a comeback.

The 50-year-old Rocket has signed with the independent Sugar Land Skeeters and will start on Saturday.

Here's hoping the Red Sox pick him up. We need more drama around Fenway Park.

On a somewhat serious note, Clemens is set to be on the Hall of Fame ballot this year for the first time and will probably not get elected right away (if at all) because of his ties to the use of performance enhancing drugs.

If Clemens were to get in just one game, he would not be eligible for another five years. By then, perhaps opinions about PED use may have changed in his favor.

It's completely unlikely to happen. But why wouldn't the Houston Astros give Clemens a start?
