Roy Halladay's velocity
Lost in the hoopla about Roy Halladay's pitch that got away against the Nationals yesterday was his actual performance. The veteran righty struck out two, walked one and allowed two hits in four scoreless innings against the Phillies' National League East Rivals. So the results were there. I talked to a scout who said that Halladay looked much sharper than he did in his previous outing, but that his velocity was topping out at 88 and everything was sitting between 86-88. When Halladay was at his most dominant, he was sitting 92-93. For perspective, Stephen Strasburg's velo was reading 94-97 yesterday, which is pretty close to where he is during the regular season.
