Clements record isn't all his fault.
You said it right there....a 3.60 Era, and a 1.250 WHIP
That's solid...along with 200IP and 200K
He's by no means equal to Schmidt, but he's not a chump either.
So far Clement is 2-4 with a 3.95 ERA and a 1.131 WHIP
all that means is that he's gettin unlucky becuz the runners he actually allows on, all come around to score. (example: last nite, 9 baserunners in 6IP, which is high for him, 5ER, 4 via HR)
The ERA is a bit high, but Chicago has a better offense than that. You're telling me that scoring 4 to 5 runs a game is out of the question? Schmidt by far is better, but Clement is a mid level pitcher.
