Roger Clemens Will Be Welcome Backed To Houston Astros With Open Arms

I wrote a column after Roger Clemens was found not guilty on charges of perjury, obstruction of justice and making false statements, basically saying that even if Clemens' reputation among the general public never recovers, he'll always he welcomed home.

Houston Astros owner Jim Crane confirmed as much, too. He said he hoped soon to speak to the seven-time Cy Young Award winner, who signed a 10-year personal services contract with the Astros that began when his career ended.

Clemens retired following the 2007 season under former Astros owner Drayton McLane, who sold the Stros to Crane in 2011. Crane understands the presence Clemens has in the area, and he's obviously about the business of making him feel at home.

"I'm happy he got a good result, and we look forward to talking to him soon," Crane said. "Any time you get a Roger Clemens in the mix, you'd have to welcome him back with open arms."
