Roger Clemens will attempt to make a comeback at age 50 after signing with the Sugar Land Skeeters of the independent Atlantic League on Monday.
Does this mean we eventually will see the once-dominating pitcher back on a major league mound?
That's a question with several layers. First of all, what are Clemens' intentions with all of this? Is it just for fun -- as one of Clemens' agents, Randy Hendricks, suggested in an email to USA Today on Monday -- or does the seven-time Cy Young winner have bigger things on his mind?
We also don't know how good he will be. People close to Clemens say he's in great shape and looking like his former self. But, still, he has been away from the game for five years away.
And he's 50. Jamie Moyer was 49 when he became the oldest starting pitcher to ever win a major league game earlier this year. To save you the trouble of doing the math, that would make Clemens the oldest ever if he did, in fact, start and win another game in the majors.
