Default Roger Clemens

So he's coming back for half a season with the Astros. 22 million dollar contract. While he won't see all of that money because it's prorated, he'll still make more than 12 million if he starts on schedule later this month.

So, let's do some math.

He's scheduled to start June 22. He'll start about 20 games this season. Prorated, he'll make about 12.8 million dollars. That's over $100,000 per inning!

He's averaged 14.5 pitches per inning over his career. This means each pitch, not counting warmups, will earn him roughly 7 grand. Seven thousand dollars...per pitch!
