Roy Halladay of the Philadelphia Phillies is the cream of the NL East.  What starter on the Braves also goes deep into games frequently?  The Apocalyptic Horsemen Stats are in my daily coverage.




I am alternating a game-day 2012 ERA For The NL East and a 2012 ERA For The MLB 5. See link section below. In each publication, the number after the title will be based on the quantity of outcomes played by the Phillies.

REASONING For The Stats:

These numbers are a glimpse over the pitching coach’s shoulder, because they warn of difficulty ahead. The rule of thumb is that the bullpen load should be no more than 33.3%, which is a 6-complete average per scheduled outing. That is why going a distance into the game is 6.1 frames or more, which is 70.4%. The added detail of 1 out per contest is 54 innings over the long summer’s course. This also shows the mound masters that give the relievers a well deserved night off, but there is a rust factor due to lack of backend chances. If there are any questions, please ask.

Philadelphia Phillies: 2012 ERA for the MLB 5 at game 48




Halladay to have shoulder examined

Now all the Philadelphia Phillies and their fans can do is wait. For another day, at least. The Phillies say they will send Roy Halladay to see a doctor on Tuesday, two days after he came out of a start due to a sore right shoulder. On Monday, the team was still determining where and when, exactly, their star right-hander will be examined. Halladay first started to feel discomfort...

Halladay to have shoulder checked

Roy Halladay’s sore right shoulder is scheduled to undergo an examination Tuesday. The Philadelphia Phillies are worried about the health of the veteran pitcher. “Anytime you have an injury, you have a concern, no matter who it is,” Phillies assistant general manager Scott Proefrock said Monday. “We've been through these things before. [Vance] Worley, [Roy] Oswalt...

Halladay leaves after 2 innings

Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Roy Halladay left his start against the Cardinals after two innings, matching the second-shortest outing of his career. The team had not revealed why Halladay, a two-time NL Cy Young winner, was replaced. Halladay surrendered the fifth grand slam of his career to the Cardinals' Yadier Molina in the first inning, but worked a perfect second getting...

Roy Halladay to miss 6-8 weeks with right lat strain

Roy Halladay will go on disabled list and miss 6-8 weeks. Halladay, 4-5 with a 3.98 ERA, will be replaced on the roster by catcher Eric Kratz. There has been a lot of talk about Halladay’s velocity. I saw him on opening day in Pittsburgh and the Pirates fans talked about it in our area, but I dismissed it. Halladay went on to pitch a 1-0 shutout victory on opening day in Pittsburgh...

Halladay fantasy baseball options

From a fantasy baseball owner's perspective, Roy Halladay has underachieved in terms of rotisserie production when compared to years past. In 11 starts this season, Philadelphia's ace has allowed 32 earned runs in 72.1 innings pitched (3.98 ERA). The last time Halladay's ERA was that high in late-May, the year was 2003 and he was pitching with the Blue Jays (4.00). ...

Phillies Injuries Mount – Halladay to Miss 6-8 Weeks

Roy Halladay Out 6-8 Weeks

Roy Halladay began the year battling diminished velocity and has struggled to pitch at a Halladay-esque level on a consistent basis. On Sunday, he left his start after just two innings, and after being evaluated today, the Phillies placed him on the disabled list with a strained latissimus dorsi muscle. On the one hand, at least it’s not an elbow or shoulder injury that sidelines...

Needing a Doctor: Halladay leaves game, Phillies drop finale

As far as first innings go, you couldn't draw up more of a disaster. A nearly insurmountable lead, another rough start for a top-of-the-line pitcher and the opposing ace on the mound. It was clear today wasn't going to be the Phillies day. The Cardinals took all the momentum in one swing, and the Phillies got more news they didn't need to hear. It was all part of a...

Roy Halladay Leaves Phillies-Cardinals Game Early With Apparent Injury

Roy Halladay got off to a rough start in today's Phillies-Cardinals game in St. Louis, issuing a grand slam home run to Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina.

On this day in 2010, perfection from Doc Halladay

On this day two years ago, the Philadelphia Flyers were riding their magical postseason run to the Stanley Cup Finals, their first appearance in the final round since being swept by the Detroit Red Wings in 1997. The Flyers were hot, taking out the second seeded New Jersey Devils in round one, followed by the comeback of all comebacks against the Boston Bruins, and a quick series...

Molina's slam ends Phillies series on high note

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Roy Halladay gave up a grand slam to Yadier Molina in an abbreviated two-inning start before leaving with shoulder soreness, and the St. Louis Cardinals avoided a four-game sweep with an 8-3 win over the Philadelphia Phillies on Sunday. The Phillies were looking for their first four-game sweep in St. Louis in 99 years. Adam Wainwright (4-5) allowed a run on seven...

Career Day for Wigginton Leads to Phillies Win

After a rough day on Sunday with a loss to the Cardinals and Roy Halladay pulled early due to shoulder soreness, the Phillies needed a serious lift. Seeing Carlos Ruiz scratched from today’s line-up with a sore hamstring was also not the good news this team was looking for. But with Cole Hamels on the mound, you had to think the Phillies had a shot against the Mets. Hamels delivered...

HAMELS WATCH 2012 Hamels Wins 8th Straight The Day After Halladay Goes Down

Can the Baseball Gods give Ruben Amaro any more concise signs that Cole Hamels needs to stay in Philadelphia? It’s almost as if the universe is trying to sway the Evil Genius to get this contract done before it’s too late, but time may be running out on that possibility. Cole Hamels went out yesterday and did exactly what he’s been doing all year… he won. He went 8 innings...
