I can't believe this hasn't gotten more mention here.  I know it was briefly mentioned in the MLB watching thread, but jeez.

Halladay went into the black hole once he joined the Phillies. Who cares?



I do not count Charlie Robertson or Jim Bunning either.

Here  is the list since 1960:
Quote
# 2.9 Jim Bunning
Sandy Koufax
Catfish Hunter
Len Barker
Mike Witt
Tom Browning
Dennis Martínez
Kenny Rogers
David Wells
David Cone
Randy Johnson
Mark Buehrle
Dallas Braden
Roy Halladay

I'd say that, after Koufax and Johnson, Halladay and Hunter are the next best pitchers on that list.  A case could be made for Cone, but not at that stage in his career.  The funny thing is, Halladay has gone away from strikeouts for the past few years, but had 11 yesterday.
