34-year old righty starting pitcher Roy Halladay finished 2nd in the voting for the 2011 N.L. Cy Young Award, behind only the deserving Clayton Kershaw of the Dodgers. Halladay pitched in 32 games (all starts) for the Phillies last year and he was 19-6 with a 2.35 ERA and a 1.04 WHIP. He has now pitched in 378 games (352 starts) in his first 14 years in the majors and he is 188-92 with 1 save, a 3.23 ERA and a 1.17 WHIP. Halladay is a true ace and he is showing no signs of slowing down, so don’t be surprised if he wins another Cy Young Award or two before he’s done pitching.
UPDATE: (11/23/2011) - Roy Halladay also finished #9 in the voting for the 2011 N.L. MVP Award yesterday.
