like how Randy Johnson's Roger Clemen's numbers have declined?
Yes, Their numbers will decline. Johnson's perfecto, notwithstanding, but he is not pitching at the same level of say 2002. Clemens has a hot start but we shall see if he can maintain it. Also, his years in NY were clearly NOT at the same level as his days in Boston or Toronto. His Cy Young Award in NY was a gift. He was not that best pitcher that year. Also, his durability has gone down. You notice that he doesn't throw many complete games anymore.
As for Pedro, he is not especially durable. He's never been known as a "workhorse" like Clemens and Johnson.
