    Who has had the better career?

    Roy Halladay or Johan Santana? Looking over both of their career numbers and accomplishments they're really even, so please give me your opinions.

    I just had both of them as my 1-2 on my Redraft team.

    As it stands right now the answer is Johan.

    I lost because JD had Pedro, but when you sit down and look at Johan's prime years they are beyond fantastic, even better than people give credit for.

    The question cant be answered until both players careers are over, but right now Santana has the edge.
    Son, you just don't get it, i'm talking bout TWTW!

    Of course you can.

    I'm going to say Johan Santana so far. He's won 2 Cy Youngs, opposed to Halladay's 1. This doesn't really affect pitching, but Johan also won a Gold Glove. Santana led his league in ERA 3 times, while Halladay is yet to lead his league in ERA. Both have led the league in wins once. Johan led the league in strikeouts 3 times, while Halladay led it in K's once. For careers, both have an almost identical W-L ratio, Haladay has 22 more wins over 2 more seasons though. Career ERA for Johan is 3.10, while Halladay's is 3.33. Santana's career WHIP is 1.12, while Halladay's is 1.18.

    From that Santana, despite 2 less years, has had a better career.

    Sanatana also won a Triple Crown for the AL in 06 I think.

    Don't forget Halladay has pitched a majority of his career in the Al East. I think that gives him a few extra points.

    Johan:

    4-Time AL Whip Champ
    3-Time ERA Champ
    3-Time AL Ks Champ
    3-Time AL K/9 Champ
    3-Time ERA+ Champ
    2-Time IP Champ
    2 Cy Youngs
    4-Time All Star
    07 Gold Glove
    2006 Triple Crown Winner

    Doc:

    3-Time IP Champ (On pace for 4)
    1 Cy Young
    7-Time All Star
    2-Time BB/9 Champ
    4-Time K/BB Champ
    5-Time CG Champ (On pace for 6)
    3-Time SHO Champ (On pace for 4)




    Johan's career ERA is better
    Johan's career WHIP is better
    Johan has a better career K/BB ratio, K/9 ratio, and H/9 Ratio.

    Halladay has a better career BB/9 ratio.

    By the end it could certainly be Halladay (He's thus far pitched better into his early/mid 30s)

    Right now though, its Santana.
    Son, you just don't get it, i'm talking bout TWTW!

    Halladay, but it is a very good question.
