Is Pedro Martinez The Greatest Pitcher Ever?

If you are not an ESPN Insider subscriber, you might be curious to how Jason Stark answers the question "How Great Is Pedro?" in his Insider column. Well, I can't reprint his column here, but I can help you in your arguments with Yankees fans over the greatness of Pedro by telling you that...

Jason Stark points out that of all pitchers who've won 150 games or more, Pedro Martinez is the career leader in the categories of Career ERA, Career WInning Percentage, Fewest Baserunners Per 9 Innings, and Greatest Differential Between Pitcher's ERA Against The Average. He also is in second place all time in categories of "Strikeouts to Walk Ratio" and "Strikeouts per 9 Innings".

So there.
