If CG are a category for you Halladay is the choice though IMO.



Really, why wont he face the Yankees?

The more I think about it the more I think Schilling may be heading in the same direction as Kevin Brown was 2 years ago.

Take Halladay.

Schilling is in the toughest division for pitchers. The Jays, Yanks, and Orioles have great offenses. It's a tough call in a non-keeper. And Schilling won't have twice as many K's as Halladay unless he strikes out 25% more batters then he did in his best season for K's, which occurred 7 years ago. In other words: he won't. He'll have about 100 more K's than Halladay, but also probably have a higher ERA and WHIP. Schilling is entering the AL East and also has to face a DH this season. He is also unfamiliar with most of the hitters, which is what he has relied on in the past to focus on individual hitters' weaknesses.

Halladay in a heartbeat. Old-man Schilling ain't gonna see the inside of my roster this year even if he's available on waivers.

Why is there a strong chance?

Perhaps I should have bolded the word AND. I would have thought it'd be easy to see what I meant anyway- He'll face the Yankee lineup but he doesn't also have to face the Sox lineup
That better for you?

This is interesting because halladay is in the same division as schilling. Also, I think the hitters will have more of a problem facing schilling as opposed to schilling facing them. As you may recall, schilling would only sign with a team that did just as much research on opposing teams and batters as he did. Schilling is a student of the game and studies his opponents rigorously. Just as much as schilling's unfamiliarity with hitters may hurt him, it can benefit him just as much.
