Halladay isn't crushing Buehrle. In fact, Mark has a good a case for cy as Roy.
Buehrle is my choice. Halladay's been good, but Buehrle has just been that much better...
I emphatically disagree with this statement.
First of all, Mark Buehrle blew up today allowing 14 hits, 7 runs (4 earned) with only 3 strikeouts for the loss, and this was agaisnt a presumably weak hitting team in the Oakland A's.
He pushed his era up to 2.58, and his record now stands at 10-2.
His whip is now 1.11 with 88 ks.
In comparence with Roy Halladay, every single one of those stats is much worse with the exception of win percentage.
Halladay's era now stands at 2.33, with a record of 12-4. His whip is a crazy .94, with 104 ks.
At mid-season right now, there should be no question as to who is the 1st half Cy Young winner.
The answer: Roy Halladay.
