Clemens has signed a contract to pitch for the Sugar Land Skeeters of the independant Atlantic League, and is expected to start for the team on Saturday against the Bridgeport Bluefish. (According to Clemens's agent Randy Hendricks, it's "a one game at a time thing." Said Hendricks: "Let's see how he does on Saturday.") We'll spare you the joke about Suzyn Waldman losing her mind somewhere upon hearing the news, and instead ask a simple question: Why does a team in Sugar Land, Texas, play in the Atlantic League?
