Very important point. Everyone makes too big of a deal out of IP. Pitch counts is the big factor and Halladay although he had 9 complete games last season had under 100 pitches in at least half of those.

Toronto does not face the Yankees before the All Star break. Weird, huh?

It is weird, but they still have to play the Yankees 19 times, which means that 25% of the Blue Jays' games after the All-Star break are against the Yankees!

Depending on who else is left, I'd take Halladay. I wouldn't worry about the IP, because like everybody said he doesn't throw a lot of pitches and doesn't have to over-power anybody. If you're going to worry, worry about the Jays facing NY 19 times after the AS break. And if it really bothers you, just trade him after the first half of the season. Remember that he didn't win a single game in all of April, and still managed to finish with the most wins in the majors. He finished the season on a 22-5 run, while maintaining respectable K numbers - 206. People are predicting a decline, and he very well could, but I don't see more reason for him than anybody else to decline.

Hmm......Interesting.......

Halladay has a career era of 6.03 era in April. (4.91 last year).

Then he gets two months and then gets the Yankees.

Well, I was thinking about this exact scenario and thought that I'd pass on Halladay, but so far you've changed my mind with the pitch count info.

Roy has good pitch counts, but he is near the top in total pitches, with over 7,000 the last 2 years. Something to watch considering his age, and the fact he only threw 5,000 in the previous 3 years. He went from a average of 1,800 to 3,500, quite a jump.
