I think the switch will negatively affect all 3 of the itchers you named. Clemens and Pettitte for obvious reasons, and Schilling because I think he relies on specific knowledge of each hitter he faces to know how to get them to miss at pitches. He has been known to have a log of every hitter he's ever faced, about how to pitch to them, strike them out, what NOT to throw, etc. He doesn't have this for the AL, and I think it's what made him really successful later in his career in Arizona. It's what set him apart from others. He'll no doubt be good, but I think he'll struggle a bit to start, but he should at least be better than last year. I wouldn't spend a first round pick on him like I would for Pedro, and I'd take Halladay before Curt, but he's just not a sure thing I don't think. He could be very good, and he could struggle. It's a gamble.
