Roger Clemens went home after the 2003 World Series, pondered retirement for 2 1/2 months and came to this not-so-stunning conclusion: Cooperstown can wait. The 41-year-old right-hander agreed yesterday to a one-year contract with his hometown Houston Astros, extending a spectacular career that almost certainly will gain him induction into baseball's Hall of Fame five years after he really retires. His return was not a major surprise. Clemens clearly still had the competitive fire to continue pitching, but he openly yearned to spend more time with his wife and four sons.

Frank Robinson,Orioles assistant GMThe five toughest left-handed pitchers he faced during his Hall of Fame career:1. Sandy Koufax. "Simply overpowering. Only pitcher I ever saw who could win with only a fastball. On the days he had a curve -- no chance."2. Mickey Lolich. "Very crafty. He would never pitch you the same way twice. He had a very deceptive fastball."3. Steve Carlton. "He had two devastating pitches, a fastball and an unhittable slider. He would work both sides of the plate with both pitches."
