I Bet He Could Throw A Baseball Over Them There Mountians

I'm not much of a baseball fan, but I appreciate greatness when I see it. Roger Clemens, now pitching for Houston (and never a pitcher for the Rangers despite going to UT), has a current ERA of 1.46. (For the uninitiated, that means over 9 innings, he averages giving up 1.46 runs). No other MLB pitcher has an ERA under 2.00. That is incredible for a man in his prime, but Clemens turns 43 in August. But, then again, for a salary of $18,000,022 in 2005, you better be good. (I don't know where the extra $22 came from).
