If you’re on the fence about whether the late, great Phillies hurler Roy Halladay deserves to be in the Hall of Fame, check this out:
Former Inky and ESPN baseball writer Jayson Stark tweeted, “How great was Roy Halladay in his prime (2002-11)? Here’s how great: His teams’ record when he started: 87 games over .500 (195-108). His teams’ record when anyone else started: 24 UNDER .500 (646-670). Difference in win percentage: 153 points. Incredible.”
Halladay should be talked about in the same breath as Roger Clemens, Pedro Martinez, Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine, Randy Johnson, John Smoltz, Curt Schilling and Mike Mussina.
