Nolan Ryan?? He was a fine pitcher, but damn...

 

Clemens and Maddux are WAY better.

Tom Seaver was robbed, the best right handed pitcher of the post war era.

No not even close...

 

Pedro, Clemens and Maddux are all better options

Seaver had 300 wins, is high on the all time K list and has a career ERA under 3.00. Rob Neyer wrote on a rticle no long ago about the greatest pitchers in baseball history and statistically speaking, Seaver is the best right handed starter of the post war era

I would definitely take Clemens and Maddux over Seaver. Just look at their winning % and their ERAs compared to the league average. Seaver's ERA would be above 3.00 for sure, if he played during the 90s.

 

I'd take Seaver over Pedro, at this point, though. I don't know who I'd choose between Pedro and Nolan. I don't think there's any question that Pedro during his 6 years of dominance was a better pitcher than Nolan Ryan ever was...but I don't know if that makes up for Nolan's longevity. He was very good for a VERY long time.

Having had the opportunity to see all those guys pitch in thier primes (Clemens, Maddux, Seaver, Ryan, and Pedro,) I would take Seaver as my #1 out of that group. I really don't think you could go wrong with any of them, but Seaver would be my pick. Out of that group, Maddux is the guy with a completely different approach, a complete thinker. The rest of them commanded your attention because they crowded you inside so hard. But Seaver was also a thinker, so you combine those two great skills to pitching.

 

For me, Pedro ranks last in that group. But oh what a group to rank last in.

Neyer is often times wrong, and as any sportswriter needs to write BS to catch the eye of someone...

Pedro is so much better any day of the week during his prime, it's ridiculous

 

Clemens, and Maddux both have HUGE advantages in adjusted ERA over Seaver.

 

He had 311 wins, Clemens already has 328 and this while pitching in an era in which it is more difficult to obtain wins. Maddux will end up with more wins as well, he already has 305 and may perhaps be the last member or one of the last to get 300 wins.

 

Seaver doesn't have the quantity or the quality of Clemens and Maddux and Pedro's quality is so much better he can retire now being regarded as a better pitcher than Seaver.
