Two questions about Halladay...

Postby Little Johnny » Wed Jan 11, 2006 12:45 pm

1. What is his health status? I have been trying to get an update with no luck. Should he enter the season completely healthy, assuming the leg has fully healed?

2. Which starting pitchers do you believe should be drafted ahead of him?

1. As far as I have read he should be entering the season completely healthy
2. The only definite is Johan, everyone else is based on personal opinion in my mind, though possibly Oswalt or Peavy would be put before him...

I'm 99% sure he's ready to pitch. I think he could've came back last year but there wasn't a point since the Jays were out of it.

I'd probably take Santana, Peavy, Oswalt and Pedro over him.

Halladay should be fine for this year, and he is in my top 5 for SP this year with actually only Santana as heads above him.

Broken leg - was healed enough by the end of the season to allow him to pitch but they shut him down when they were out of contention. From what I have heard he is 100% now and ready to to put his full weight on it and throw from a mound.

This was a freak accident that is good in that it gave him more rest than he is used to. Pitchers are a crap shoot but I put him right up there with Santana.

I've got Santana and Peavy ahead of him for sure. After that he's right there with Pedro and Oswalt.

In a keeper league, who is the choice, Doc or King Felix?

I think you still go with doc. It's tough, becaue King Felix's upside is to be the best pitcher we've seen in decades, but he's still not a sure thing. Halladay has established himself as one of the most dominant pitchers in the game, and won't turn 30 until the 2007 season.
