What do you think about his 22 million dollar decision.

The Astros are offering $13.5 million, which is a pretty damn good offer for a one year contract to a 42 year old pitcher.
I doubt the arbitrator will rule in Clemens' favor but you wonder if the Astros are going to chance it so they might be tempted to compromise at the halfway point.
Clemens will probably drag the Astros through a big mess only to retire in the end. He knows this team's window to win the World Series was last season and he has so much leverage on Houston because he can easily call it quits.
I think the world of Clemens as a pitcher and competitor, but he's one of baseball's biggest a-holes.

I would kindly ask him to tell his story walking.
