Roy Halladay’s 15 Worst Starts

The Miami Marlins punished Roy Halladay yesterday and Doc admitted it’s time to see a doc.

Following his second poor outing in a row, Halladay will be examined by Dr. Lewis Yocum to check his aching shoulder.

“I woke up and didn’t really think anything of it, just regular soreness,” Halladay said. “It has kind of progressed over the last two weeks or so.”

“It’s not something that I had before,” Halladay said. “It’s something new this year. I felt good all spring. I had soreness in there and just wasn’t able to get rid of it.”

Game Score developed by Bill James, is a great tool to compare game performances.

1. Start with 50 points.
2. Add 1 point for each out recorded, so 3 points for every complete inning pitched.
3. Add 2 points for each inning completed after the 4th.
4. Add 1 point for each strikeout.
5. Subtract 2 points for each hit allowed.
6. Subtract 4 points for each earned run allowed.
7. Subtract 2 points for each unearned run allowed.
8. Subtract 1 point for each walk.

Three of Halladay’s seven worst starts have occurred on May 5.
