Can being ugly keep you out of the hall of fame?

Roger Clemens career ERA+ 144 (9th all time)
Randy Johnson Career ERA+ 137 (17th all time)

That is a pretty big difference IMO.

The difference between Roger and RJ is greater the difference between Kevin Brown and RJ.

Well you are all wrong. The best pitcher was of that generation was neither Clemens nor Unit it was Pedro and I can't stand Pedro. I would rank them, Pedro, Unit, Clemens. Clemens has the better career stats, but IMO Pedro and Unit were more dominating. Its impossible to say who used performance enhancers. I will say that Pedro bulked up a bit and Clemens would be at the top of my list of these three guys. As for Unit, well he has always been tall and lanky he would be at the bottom of the list of abusers. But then again Alex Sanchez used steroids so who knows???

All 3 guys are HOFers and i guess I would add Maddux to the list, he was damn good too.
