33-year old righty starting pitcher Roy Halladay has pitched just like the Phillies thought he would this year. Halladay has started 27 games for the Phillies this year and he is 16-9 with a 2.22 ERA and a 1.02 WHIP. He has given up 187 hits in 207 innings pitched this year and he has only walked 25 batters so you better be ready to swing when he’s on the mound. The most important thing for the Phillies’ pitching staff as a whole is that Halladay is a workhorse which saves the bullpen every fifth day. He has completed 8 games this season including three shutouts. He has been the best pitcher in the National League this season but he might not win the Cy Young Award due to a lack of run support which is one thing I never thought I would say this year because of the Phillies’ offense.
