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 earned his 339th career win and lowered the majors' tiniest ERA to 1.38 with seven outstanding innings in the first appearance of his career in San Francisco. He allowed an unearned run in the first, but didn't let another runner reach third base while improving to 7-1 with a 1.19 ERA in his last 11 starts.
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.
