BS. Clemens was the better pitcher.
Clemens had the better ERA. That does not automaticly make him the better pitcher.
You are right if you strictly go by fantasy categories. But this is reality. Clemens had the better season.
Back it up with stats.
Clemens wins on RA, ERA, ERC, DIP by almost a full run. A pitcher's job is to prevent the other team from scoring. This category is seriously not even close.
Clemens beats him in WHIP, BAA, OBP, SLG against. Better VORP. I think he had better win shares also but I can't find it right now.
Carpenter beat him by slightly in K/9, went longer in his starts (but Clemens also was battling injuries) and by a wide margin in Ws which has very little to do with a pitcher's performance.
