Enough Already... Pick a team!

We now enter month 6 (although it seems like year 6) of the "will he or won't he" Roger Clemens watch and I'm just about fed up with it. With the Sox finally losing to Baltimore (even a broken clock is right twice a day) I have to have something to talk about - and Roger's "everyone pay attention to me" antics have me at my wit's end.
Jayson Start reports on ESPN.com that Roger has upped his workout regimen to eventually have a conversation with his body to see if he wants to pitch again. This is making the Brett Favre crap look by comparison. Stark ponders if anyone has even been booed at a Hall of Fame induction ceremony (as Clemens will be if he comes back for the Yankees) because you know RSN will be out in full force just for the joy of doing JUST THAT to Roger "Its all about me" Clemens.
That being said, I would LOVE to have him back on the Sox to pass Cy Young for all time wins in a Red Sox uniform and do the full circle thing for his career. At the same time, he has divisional races in both leagues holding their breath - and you know he loves it.
Let's take another quick look at the contenders, in no particular order:
1. Texas. Great offense, no pitching, no bullpen, the least $$ to spend. Nuff said. Odds: 0%
2. Houston. Lives there, gets preferential treatment, kid in the organiztion, offered $3 mill a month to play. Odds: 40%
3. New York. Loves Joe Torre, won there, tons of $$. Cons - NYers never liked him, the rest of the staff is in shambles and Rivera looks mortal this year. Odds: 25%
4. Boston. Full circle, Al Nipper, Curt Schilling... Beckett, Schill and P-bon worship him, the fans would go bonkers, the Sox have the $$$ and c'mon, if we could draft Ted Williams' kid as a favor we can draft Roger's other kid... Odds: 35%
They say Roger could decide anywhere from 10 days to 3 weeks - I hope he does it soon and ends this charade...

oh, and as a follow-up:
Hello, my name is Carl Pavano. I used to play baseball (my last appearance was 6/27/05) and date Alyssa Milano. Now, I'm pitching one inning of Double-A ball before leaving with tightness in my arm. For those keeping score at home, the Yanks paid $40 million for: a bad rotator cuff, back problems and a bruised butt cheek. Love it.

Houston at 60%? In that division when you have to face Pujols and the Cardinals (sick game by Mulder) and that offense is shaky at best, I wouldn't put them much over 40%. If he wanted to sign with Houston he already would have. He's an ass but he's not stupid. Plus, if Houston wanted him that bad - they would have at least offered him arbitration - which they didn't.
Pavano is one of the best non-signings ever by Theo. I'm glad we have Matt Clement for $9 million a year. Seriously. At least he'll get out on the mound and pitch in 2006 - the same can't be said for Pavano. What a classic Yankee signing. The best deal of that whole Marlins firesale is Beckett and Mike Lowell for Hanley Ramirez. Where were the Yankees on that one? Oh yeah, their depleted farm system is so void of any decent prospects (don't let the YES blowhards convince you Melky or Cano are future HOF'ers) they weren't able swing the deal and eat Mike Lowell's salary and use him as a back up 1B for the re-juiced Giambino.
