Roy “Doc“ Halladay has struggled to start 2013
From 2002 until the beginning of the 2012 MLB season, when you wanted to define what exactly is an Ace pitcher, you looked no further than Roy Halladay. Halladay, or very commonly known as “Doc” was the cream of the crop when it came to starting pitchers. For 7 straight seasons (2003-2009), Halladay was the Opening Day starter for the Toronto Blue Jays and even after being traded to the Philadelphia Phillies in the 2009/2010 off-season, Halladay would start 3 more Opening Days for the Phillies. Every season, you could guarantee Halladay would give you 220+ innings, with an average of 16 wins and a ton of complete games. Halladay was always flat out dominant, his wide array of pitches could get the best hitters out and make other quality starting pitchers from around the majors look bad.
Here is a look at some of Roy Halladay‘s resume builders for the Hall of Fame:
201-103 career record (through May 1st, 2013) with a 3.35 ERA and 2719....

After three straight promising starts Roy Halladay turned in another clunker Tuesday night. In allowing eight runs on nine hits and two walks, Halladay finished April with a 6.75 ERA, 5.73 FIP and a ghastly 2.25 HR/9. He cost the Phillies 0.3 WAR last month.
MLB Network noted this morning that Halladay’s 5.59 ERA over the last calendar year (April 30, 2012 to April 30, 2013) is...
Roy Halladay has been one of the most frustrating players to own this year. After starting the year off with a 14.73 ERA (7.1 IP) in his first two starts, he allowed only 4 runs over his next 3 games (21 IP). Last night Halladay was just awful (3.2 IP, 9 H, 8 ER, 2 BB, 3 K) leaving fantasy owners wondering what to do with him.The velocity on Halladay’s cutter, which has sat right...
It took more time than he would have liked, but Roy Halladay has gotten back to the level at which he's accustomed to pitching.
That's good news for a Philadelphia Phillies team which manager Charlie Manuel believes is starting to click.
Philadelphia seeks a fourth straight victory as it visits the Cleveland Indians to open a two-game interleague series Tuesday night.
*Roy Halladay has pitched pitched 13.7% of the amount of innings he did in 2011, but has already allowed 39.3% of the amount of runs during that season (2013 IP/R - 32/24, 2011 IP/R - 233.2/61). He has pitched 12.8% of the amount of innings he did in 2010, but has already issued 43.3% of the amount walks he did during that season (2013 IP/BB - 32/13, 2010 IP/BB - 250.2/30). Doc...
After the artist formerly known as Roy Halladay gave up an eight-spot in less than four innings of work, I was able to focus my undivided attention to the NBA and NHL playoffs. OK, so since I have two televisions in my living room with the NBA on one and the NHL on the other, [...]The post The 5 Differences Between The NBA And NHL Playoffs appeared first on The Sports Fan Journal.
After 3 straight solid starts, things seemed to be looking up for Roy Halladay. That all changed last night when he got scalped by the Indians. The Tribe took Doc deep 3 times; all 3 times there was a man on base. Those 6 runs, plus 2 more, chased Halladay from the game after only 3 2/3 innings. His ERA is now 6.75. Ouch.
But the pain did not end there. Chad Durbin and Raul Valdes...
CLEVELAND (AP) --Ryan Raburn homered twice for the second straight game and the Cleveland Indians hit seven home runs in all, routing the Philadelphia Phillies 14-2 Tuesday night.
The Indians set a major league high this season for homers in a game. Cleveland has won three in a row, outscoring opponents 33-5 in that span.
Philadelphia had won three in a row before Roy Halladay (2...
Tim Hudson won his 200th game on Tuesday night against the Washington Nationals, becoming just the 110th pitcher in MLB history to reach the milestone. On the same evening, Roy Halladay allowed 8 earned runs (3 HR) to the Cleveland Indians in 3.67 IP at Progressive Field.
Is Tim Hudson the most underrated pitcher in the 21st century? Has the Atlanta Braves ace pitched to the level...

I'm starting to think that the Drew Carey Show's theme song "Cleveland Rocks", created in 1997 for the hit sitcom, was meant just for tonight's game at Progressive Field 16 years later. Without a doubt, the Indians rocked Roy Halladay in his outing...

Just what the doctor ordered.
The Indians continued their hot play on Tuesday as they routed the Philadelphia Phillies in a slugfest, 14-2. Tribe bats exploded for 14 runs on 16 hits to win their third consecutive game.
Offensively, Cleveland greeted Interleague play and Phillies starter Roy Halladay with a knockout, belting a Progressive Field record seven home runs in the contest...
What we learned from the two game series with the Cleveland Indians, the Phillies are far from a contender. In game one the Phillies lost by the long ball and if you were a believer that Roy Halladay was back in from you learned after a mere inning he is not. Giving up two home runs in the first, the Indian’s made Halladay’s night a quick one in a rout. The second game the opposite...
