You make it sound like a bad thing that he had a Cy Young calibre season. He learned 2 very effective pitches and was one of the best pitchers in baseball. To expect him to go back to his old stats is a stupid thing to do. A drop in stats, sure. It would be hard for anybody to repeat what he did last year. But to completely ignore everything he accomplished last year is stupid.
Agreed, especially about the Cy Young part. You switch Halladay's first month with his last and Loaiza's as well, and Loaiza cruises to the CY. I would have had no complaints had Loaiza won the award.
