Here is a fun article from espn.com which lists the top 10 baseball record minus the home runs. If nothing else, it'll spark some debate.

I don't think most of these will be broken in my lifetime. The only ones w/ a chance are the single season RBI total and perhaps the 57 scoreless innings stretch.

Yeah, the Clemens report hasn't been confirmed yet, but it only seems a matter of time before he returns to Houston.

figure he gets 5 starts a month roughly....

that's about $700,000 per start

If he goes 7 innings per start: that's $100,000 per inning.

roughly 15 pitches per inning: $6,666.66 per pitch

He should be able to pick up nine more wins and reach 350 in his career.

Bill Simmons was right: Roger Clemens is the Antichrist.

I'm sure the fact that his son is in the Houston system also was a major part of his decision to stay close to home.

think he'll keep pitching half seasons until he is 50?

that's good coinage for a few months "work"

seriously, how many no decisions will Pedro get this season? He hasn't won a game in MAY ! It's like Clemens from last season (almost), fantastic ERA and no run support and tons of NDs.

And sad enough about Clemens is that if I were the Phils I would have paid more than that to have him for the rest of the year.
