All I can say is, if Wang's slider is that good now, he's unhittable. What he did with the slider against the Mets is uncanny. That's the slider that Matsuzaka had in Japan, and the one he's only had marginal control of since coming to the States. If Wang has his plus fastball, his world class sinker, and can throw that slider.....whatever. I actually thought that Clemens presence in New York may be a good opportunity for Wang to add the patented Clemens Splitter to his arsenal, because I think he could learn it and I think with the sinker it would be devastating. That slider almost eliminates the need, but sinker, slider, splitter would be Cy Young material.
