He was playing the long game, just waiting to see what Carlos would do. And now we have an answer (the Mets!) and Roger has a dilemma: stay with the depleted Astros near his home and with buddy Andy Pettitte; retire; or sign in some other town (a curtain call in Beantown? a final bow in pinstripes?). WWRD?
