I'm guessing a little bit of run support makes a big difference.

Do some research guys. He outpitched Roger Clemens in Game 7 of the '04 LCS as well...this has happened before.

Man how baseball has changed over 20 years or so. A 4 ERA is considered good?? Dudes with those kinds of numbers would never have been starters back in the day.

He always pitched way better in the NL than the AL, I don't know why.

Its because #1 the American League is far superior to the NL as witnessed by anyone who has watched interleague play the last several years and #2 NL Pitchers don't face a DH. An extra free out every couple innings does wonders. There are no easy outs in the American League unless you're facing Angel Berroa.

the NL is weak, decent pitchers in the AL become some what studs in the NL most of the time

He probably doubled his annual salary (little less than 5 mil) with this game.

We used to call him whiplash. He was a turd when he was here.
