Why Roger Clemens' Astros Return Would Make Bud Selig, MLB Look Stupid

As the MLB season heads into September, the biggest story in the league is the seemingly imminent return of Roger Clemens to MLB.

The controversial 50-year-old right-hander had not pitched since 2007 before making a start with the Sugar Land Skeeters of the Independent League last Saturday (8/25). He went 3.1 innings and allowed just one hit while striking out two.

The Houston Astros scouted his start and owner Jim Crane is reportedly (h/t CBSSports) open to the idea of bringing Clemens aboard for a few starts to close out the season. He'll make one more start for Sugar Land on September 7 (h/t ESPN) and could sign with Houston following that.

From my point of view, there are more than a few reasons why a Clemens return to MLB will make both Bud Selig and the MLB in general look incredibly stupid.
