I was looking over Roy Halladay’s career numbers in anticipation of tonight’s game and was amazed by his career line against the Yankees. Parsing through those numbers provides some amazing little nuggets of information. Remember, the Yankees have been the best offense in baseball for much of Halladay’s career.
Total Career: 1955.2 IP, 142-70, 3.45 ERA, 1.19 WHIP, 8.8 H/9, .7 HR/9, 2.0 BB/9, 6.5 K/9, .254/.299/.373
Vs. the Yankees: 223.1 IP, 16-5, 2.90 ERA, 1.12 WHIP, 8.0 H/9, .8 HR/9, 2.1 BB/9, 6.9 K/9, .239/.290/.363
Well, there you have it. Roy Halladay has pitched better than his career numbers against the best offense in baseball. This likely explains why Yankees fans consider him the best pitcher in baseball, despite the fact that Johan Santana probably has a better case over the last 5-7 years. Halladay just kills the Yankees pretty much every time out.
Speaking of Yankee killers, who else do you recall beating the Yankees on a consistent basis? Conversely, who did the Yankees beat despite their lofty stature?
