Halladay this good?

Postby Brownie » Sat Jun 14, 2003 11:59 pm

How good is Roy Halladay? Will he continue winning at this pace? Will his second have be more of the same? Is he worth trading a notch closer (Wagner) for?

Halladay was 19-5 last year, he'll do better this year (W wise). If you have other closers to get you saves, I'd do it.

You can't win 9 in a row on luck. You gots to be good.

On the other hand, avoid Cory Lidle.

Halladay is pitching well, and when he doesn't he's still got that great lineup to help.

Halladay for Wagner could be a good deal for both sides. Both are studs at their positions. If you need SP and think you can afford to trade a RP like Wagner for Halladay, that is a good move.

It really ddepends on what your team needs, and your roto standings if you are in a roto league. It is certainly fair.

I believe toronto is going to a 4-man rotation. If this happens, it could be good for Halladay short-term, but near the end of the season, I would expect the fatigue to wear on him.

Toronto has already dropped the four man rotation; check out some of Neyer's columns on this. Lidle and others were a little peaved.

I bet they'll do a modified four man rotation...

I think Halladay's arm will be fine. Remember, Riccardi comes from the Beane system where they take Damn good care of their pitchers.

Yep...Toronto has shevled the 4man idea...look at the way Escobar is pitching

secondly...Halladay IS this good...his K to BB ratio is 46-6 over his 9 game streak and his era is under 3 with the exception of the 7 run blow up against Boston
