The experts did not see the huge command gains or the ERA drop that goes with it.

TBLA members expected great things from Clayton but only a few took it to the level Clayton took it.

I think Josie wins this:

ERA: 2.251
WHIP: -1
IP: 203
Ks: 215
W-L: 20-3

Kershaw is Aces. I once saw Kershaw pull a woman from a burning building, that he set on fire, just to test himself.

Michael and David both had Clayton posting plus 3.00 ERA's. Punks
