I actually almost made this same post the other day. Three top-5 Cy Young finishes over a 16-year career isn't particularly impressive. World series rings aside, he pales in comparison to Scherzer and Verlander (his rough contemporaries) by just about every statistical measure.

Agree with tdiddy, he's a very good pitcher who falls into the realm of Kevin Brown, Tim Hudson, David Cone, Andy Pettitte...
