Report: Angels Bid Aybar, Saunders, And Bourjos For Roy Halladay
MLB Hot Stove adds that Halladay will be a free agent at the end of 2010.
He's 28, never had a FIP below 4.15 (2006, it's risen each year since), and never had an xFIP below 4.58 (2006, risen each year since). Career best K/9 IP is 6.5 (2006, fallen each year since).
Notice a pattern here? He was never good, and has been regressing and pitching worse over the last 4 seasons.
If they really care about how expensive the returning players are, just don't trade Roy and take the 2 first rounders next year. Those should be cheaper than Saunders, and regardless, they'll be under team control for longer. Kid.
By the way, your name is missing a T.
Rob- What about his 2006, 2007, and 2008 seasons? All I see is regression. Not a good sign. Unless you're Mat and don't care about performance.
