Good riddance, Rocket

So, the Rocket’s heading back to the Big Apple, huh?

Good riddance, Rocket.

Now the Houston Astros can move on without the distraction that accompanied Roger Clemens’ annual hide-and-seek show.

Clemens might sign with the Astros. Or could it be the New York Yankees? The Boston Red Sox?

Stay tuned to the Roger Clemens Show.

Forget the drama.

Dim the spotlights.

Clemens’ act had clearly worn thin within the organization.

“Disappointing, but we’ve gone through this for three years,” Astros owner Drayton McLane said in describing Clemens’ decision to return to the Yankees.

Clemens had an outstanding run with the Astros, but stars like Roy Oswalt and talented youngsters like Matt Albers represent the team’s future.

Clemens once told me how much he enjoyed playing before passionate fans in Boston, New York and Toronto.

“They love their baseball,” he said.

And obviously their drama.
