By Hall Rating, Roger Clemens rates as the top pitcher since World War II. He distances himself from Greg Maddux (who benefitted from superb defense behind him) and Randy Johnson (who rates higher than one might expect) by a substantial margin. Of course, Clemens’ legacy (7 Cy Young Awards, 354 wins, an MVP Award, and 4,762 strikeouts) is now tarnished by suspicions of performance enhancing drugs.
