Carpenter 213IP 20-4 191K's 2.28 era
Clemens 189.1IP 11-6 169K's 1.57 era
My only question is does era have that much weight on it to make up for Clemens' other stats?
Either way IMO Carpenter, barring a meltdown in last few starts, has a big lead over Clemens in the NL Cy Young race.
Other then record, it's not a big lead. Clemens will get some 1st place votes. Clemens still leads in Win Shares and VORP. 20 wins will sway alot of writers, so Carpenter has a good shot, but imo Clemens still has been better.
