Halladay had a couple bad starts.  I doubt he is going to go 1-3 to start the season as I mentioned in my thread.

Although you may be correct, recent history (2012 and this year) would tell you differently. The only success so far this year has come against a minor league team and only time will tell if he 100%.

Forgot to mention, the fact that he is a former Cy Young award winner does not mean a d.am.n thing this year

I disagree.  The Phillies gave Halladay a total of FIVE runs over his three starts this year.  That is not going to win ball games... Even for the league's best. Incidentally, Halladay may have had a rough start but he struck out 9 against the Braves and I still think he will win 12-14 games this year.

At least we find out early why the Cards are only -120.

Count me in as one of the suckers.
