Q: With his son pitching in Lexington, Ky., close to Cincinnati, is there any way the Reds try to sign Roger Clemens? It would take a financial commitment, but he could be the starting pitcher to put this team in the playoffs, and think of the fans he'd draw on days he pitched. — Keith, Lexington
A: Clemens has four sons, all with first names beginning with 'K,' as in strikeout (Koby, Kory, Kacy, Kody), so would he leave Houston to see just one? Doubt it. Last year Houston paid him $21 million to match his uniform number. Maybe if he took uniform No. 2, the Reds could afford him. But even he wouldn't put the Reds in the playoffs. He only pitches every fifth day and they'd still be running some of those other guys out there.
