Both of them get lots of Ks, both of them have decent teams this year; both of them have shaky closer situations, which may hurt their win totals... do you guys think one is better than the other?

Schmidt. Better ballpark, better offensive team, slightly better pitcher.

Schmidt is very much better pitcher than Clement. Clement is overrated this year.

I agree about Clement being overrated. For all the praise he got last year, he only finished at like 12-11 with a 3.60 ERA. The only thing that made him special was his Ks.

Clements record isn't all his fault.
You said it right there....a 3.60 Era, and a 1.250 WHIP

That's solid...along with 200IP and 200K
He's by no means equal to Schmidt, but he's not a chump either.

So far Clement is 2-4 with a 3.95 ERA and a 1.131 WHIP
all that means is that he's gettin unlucky becuz the runners he actually allows on, all come around to score. (example: last nite, 9 baserunners in 6IP, which is high for him, 5ER, 4 via HR)

The ERA is a bit high, but Chicago has a better offense than that. You're telling me that scoring 4 to 5 runs a game is out of the question? Schmidt by far is better, but Clement is a mid level pitcher.

Why? They are pretty much a push. People complain Clements 3.60 era wasnt great, Schmidts was only 3.45. But Clement was the better pitcher when factoring in parks. Clements era+ was 112 to Schmidts 110. Clements whip was 1.20 to Schmidts 1.19. Check these splits. In a neutral park, Clement would be better.

Schmidt

home era 2.37
road era 5.02 terrible

Clement

home era 4.57
road era 2.55
