The Yankees 3 best pitchers, Wang, Pettitte and Mussina have been good this season. Going into Tuesday's game, they have a collective ERA of 3.74 and a WHIP of 1.35. Even so, the Red Sox best 3 pitchers, Schilling, Beckett and Wakefield, have been even better. They have a collective ERA of 2.74.
As further evidence of why Roger Clemens isn't a necessity to the Red Sox, the Red Sox entire staff, 1-5 has outperformed the Yankees best 3 starters to this point. The entire Red Sox rotation going into Tuesday's game has an ERA of 3.79 and a WHIP of 1.22 even with Matsuzaka struggling and Tavarez starting.
