You're right those numbers are hard to argue with.. but they can be argued. Schmidt has been the best pitcher period. With one less start the Clemens he's got more IP, more K's, Fewer walks, fewer hits, better ERA, and a much better WHIP.. and Schmidt plays on a much weaker offensive team than Clemens. The reason Rocket and RJ are getting votes is because people are playing the popularity card and not basing it upon the actual numbers put in front of them. While RJ,Rocket have been good.. no one has been better than Schmidt.
