Cheer up Roy... I think you should win the Cy Young Award
Last night's performance by Roy Halladay was far from his best this year.
Then again, he threw a perfect game earlier this year... safe to say he isn't topping THAT any time soon.
He struggled early and put the Phillies behind 2-0 and 3-2... then he settled down. He gave the Phillies 7 innings and allowed them a shot to win. Which he did.
For those who are in love with wins, he has 17, the same as Adam Wainwright and Ubaldo Jimenez.
Halladay's ERA is just .02 more than Wainwright's but he's thrown many more innings.
And unlike Wainwright, Halladay picked up a win today that his team sorely needs.
As of this writing, he's my choice to win the Cy Young Award.
That could change at any moment.
