In response to andrewmitch's comment:
FACT - he's ERA since coming off the DL is 4.62. (do you see how facts can be measured quantitatively? just putting something in writing doesn't make it fact. by the way, feel free to "fact-check" my numbers)
Now.......You believe he's dominant. Therefore, logic dictates that you believe a 4.62 ERA is reflective of a dominant pitcher. That's your opinion. Most of the baseball world would completely disagree. However, in this room, you are among friends. You are among friends. Talk with your friends because honestly, your responses here are barely coherent and I'm afraid I am going to say something rude to you and I want you be in a safe place.
You're so disingenuous and FOS it's coming out of your ears. How does my saying that when Clay is healthy and well adjusted he is dominant equate to me saying he is dominant right now?
Lester has had three seasons with an above 4 ERA, so he sucks also. Matt Schezer has had two above 4 in his short career so he sucks, Roger Clemens had six seasons above 4 so he blows, I guess Clay had better load up on HGH so he can catch up, Greg Maddux had 7 seasons with an above 4 ERA... Shall I go on or can we wait to see Clay's full body of work before we rush to judgment?
His career ERA is 3.86, he's been to two All Star games, he's led the entire league in ERA, pitched a no hitter, I wonder how thats possible when he sucks so bad?
The only thing that sucks around here is the fortitude of some Red Sox fan's spines and your sense of entitlement.
My responses to you have been coherent and logical, just because you don't understand doesn't make it any less true.
So feel free to explain how an All Star pitcher can also be "not dominant," tell us how someone can be good and bad at the same time?
Just because Clay has struggled, along with the rest of the team outside of Lester (who happens to be in a contract year) doesn't mean he can't return to the dominant pitcher he was when he was going to All Star games.
But since you can see into the future please let me know who's going to win the Series this year, I need to call Vegas?
