#7 Jose Reyes
#24 Manny Ramirez
#25 Barry Bonds :P (ok so he's not playing this year)
#32 Roy Halladay (HANDS DOWN!)


Josh hamilton over halladay you guys nuts??
the guy has had 1 good year in the majors. All you non canadians dont reaally realize how good Halladay truly is.
If Roy ws on boston or a real that can actually hit he would be winning the cy young every single year. hands down the best .. yes THE best pitcher in baseball.

If i need someone to pitch one game for me and win, id be picking halladay.

Morrow 11.68k per 9IP, .226 OBA K/BB 3.21, H9 4.15, BB9 3.63
Hamels 7.87k per 9IP, .265 OBA, K/BB 3.46, Hits per 9IP 7.11, BB9 2.27

how is that crazy?? I already stated its hard to compare starter to closer/set-up man, i mean really what is so difficult in what i said? If you don't agree you don't agree plain and simple, it really isn't my fault you have no clue about morrow's stats.

Hamels is a starter, Morrow is more known than you think, it's borderline ******** to put Morrow over Hamels.
