A quick post here on Memorial Day for those checking in.

Roy Halladay is simply amazing: 11 games, 81 innings, 10 starts, 5 complete games. Perhaps the most impressive part of Halladay's domination is his efficiency, take a look at the pitches total of the top five inning throwers.

 

NAME IP PITCHES P/IP
Halladay 81 1092 13.48
Blanton 80.3 1230 15.32
Harang 78.7 1233 15.67
Cook 76.7 1064 13.87
Hamels 76.3 1149 15.06

That's incredible, and assuming Halladay stays healthy it wouldn't a stretch to have him pegged for nearly 250 innings this season. The last player to do that was Livan Hernandez in 2004, he threw 255 innings.
