IIRC, part of the Houston 'deal' was that he could have time to go to his son's ballgames or something like that but his son's out of high school now so perhaps he'd be willing to travel a bit. This is such a personal thing though, between Rocket and Houston's management, that I don't see anything but total guesses coming out until they have already decided what they are going to do.

It's really kind of a unique situation, at least as it's been depicted. Rocket retires but comes back to play for his homer team and pass on road trips as his schedule permits. I think that it's been handled unusually classily on both sides which is why I don't think that we'll find out what they are doing until it's done. That being said, I'd have to say 20 million might be a bit steep for the 'stros but it will be interesting to see it play out.

*applause for both sides*
