Interesting snippet of information:

Worst 5 ERAs when facing elimination with >=20 innings pitched.

Tim Wakefield      6.75
Clayton Kershaw   5.77
Roger Clemens      5.28
Pedro Martinez      5.17
Max Scherzer      5.06

That is some list!
where did you get that?  Was that 20+ innings in elim games?  I don't recall Wakefield pitching in too many elim games other than the relief appearance in ALCS game 7 2003 (Aaron Boone).  Clemens makes sense to me.  The As lit him up I think in 1988 and 1990, and the Sox I think maybe in '04 (I forget if he started game 7 ALCS).
