is this one obvious or what? more starts, better record, similar ERA, more CG's, more shutouts, more IP, and a ton mre K's...the only thing Maddux has on clemens is walks

I'm braves fan, and ex wife is a sox fan, so this was fairly easy for me.  Clemens does have more on Maddux in terms of numbers, but is also a different style pitcher.  And only nine more starts, what if clemens hadn't taken the early months off the last couple of years.

I've been a Braves fan since i could probably walk.  This is a close toss up for me.  I would give the edge to the Rocket, but just barely.  If you ask the hitters i don't think they've liked facing either.
