RHP Roy Halladay

While Roy Halladay‘s tenure in Philadelphia lasted just four years, he aided the Phillies to two NL East crowns. In his four years as a Phillie, he carried a 3.25 ERA, 1.119 WHIP, and accumulated 17.1 WAR.

Over his career, Halladay was an eight-time All-Star and twice won the Cy Young award as well as being the runner-up twice. He has 67 complete games, including 20 shutouts. As a whole, he has a career 3.38 ERA, 1.178 WHIP, 203-105 record, and 3.58 strikeout-to-walk ratio.

Turning towards the Hall of Fame metrics, Halladay is above the average Hall of Famer in Black Ink and Hall of Fame Monitor but below-average in Gray Ink as well as Hall of Fame Standards. His seven-year peak WAR of 50.6 is nearly identical to the average Hall of Fame starting pitcher, but his career 64.7 WAR and 57.6 JAWS are both below-average. However, his career JAWS is better than several other Hall of Famers.

Overall, Halladay has a track record of awards, consistency, and advanced metrics that should get him into the Hall with ease. Since Halladay last played in 2013, he would be eligible for induction in 2018, and it isn’t a stretch to say he could be inducted his first year.
