  • Cy Young Question...

    Why is ESPN no longer including Clemens?

    I just watched the Willis highlights on SportsCenter, and it seems they have discounted Clemens now...

    Sure, he got blown up...but so has Carpenter...more than once...

    Don't get me wrong, I still want to see Carpenter win it...I just wonder why Clemens has suddenly fallen out of the hunt now that Willis has surged...

    I'm not totally sure. I mean, he's on a team that is most likely going to the playoffs. Maybe it's the win total and lack of strikeouts?

      I'm thinking it's because it'd be easier to overlook one 20-game winner to give him the award, but much much harder to overlook two 20-game winners, both with mid-2 ERAs.

        It happened when his ERA bounced up.

        And the fact that he's missed starts.

        And the fact that he's going to be busted for steroids when the year's over.

          Best pitcher in the league, but his team sucks, I think the two twenty game winner thing is true.

            I think the 12-8 record has everything to do with it, plus the fact that he hasn't won a game since August sometime (I think I read that somewhere).
