That difference isn't really attributable to defense or strength of competition, so it must be due to the difference in park factors (COL 115 multi-year, PHI 100). A replacement-level P would be expected to allow basically the same # of runs in Jimenez's 222 IP as in Halladay's 250 IP. That works out to a rate of 5.9 R/9 for a replacement P in Coors and 5.1 R/9 in Citizens Bank. Sure enough, 5.9/5.1 ~ 1.15.

And since Jimenez/Halladay practically allowed the same # of total runs, they have pretty much the same WAR.

And wow, he sure could hit for a relief pitcher. Looked like the next Babe Ruth in his rookie year but then didn't have much of a career.

Halladay walked less than 1/3 as many hitters, had a better ERA+ and threw more innings with a lower WHIP. What am I missing?

I noticed Carlos May on the 1969 AL ROY voting. Tomorrow happens to be his birthday, May 17. "May 17" was also his jersey for most of his career. I'm wondering if anyone knows how many of the teams he played for had the names on the backs of their uniforms at that point. In any event, happy Carlos May Day!
