Roger Clemens is an arrogant SOB but he's the best damn pitcher I've ever seen.
In 1997 and 1998 Toronto Blue Jays fans like myself saw first hand how good he really is. All he did was go out and lead the American League in wins, strike outs and ERA winning back to back Cy Young Awards. I'll give you a moment to comprehend what I just wrote. This is as dominant as a pitcher can get.
Yesterday, Clemens allowed three hits in 6 2/3 shutout innings to lead the Houston Astros over the Seattle Mariners 1-0. The victory made him the oldest pitcher to win his first nine decisions at the age of 41. He currently leads the National League in wins, strike outs and ERA.
Say what you will about the man, but there's no denying he's the best pitcher of his generation. He may be the best pitcher of all time.
