    Someone explain this to me. They said that Roger Clemens is coming out of retirement to pitch for the Astros. If you didn't miss any games last year and you are going to be on the team by spring training this year, can we say that you was ever retired?

    I think to be retired you have to at least miss a game. I suppose the question I am asking, was Roger Clemes ever retired at all?

    According to the AP the term they're using is "pushing back his retirement".

    Was his contract over with the Yankees or was he looking for an out ?

    I think his home town is Houston
    Just wanting to pitch in front of home town people
    I never ever believe any more athletes who say they are retiring
    Except Gretzky, he will never come back

    They pushed back his retirement???? Hmm, what if god-forbid' he is hit by a bus and killed, did he ever retire in the first place or was he tragically cut down in the twilight of his career?

    It seems to be you can't be retired until you at least miss one game. It's sort of like a teacher having a retirement party before xmas and then coming back to work January 2 nfter xmas vacation is over.
