Roy Halladay just made Buster Posey look silly with fastballs that ran in on him. Keeping pitches around the plate with Posey will be crucial in keeping him at bay. If he gets to 2-0, 3-1 counts and can be selective, he’s much more dangerous. Against Pat Burrell, Halladay mixed up cutters with a nasty curveball and got him to chase a tailing fastball away. He can really do anything he wants with a baseball. Another one-pitch at bat, this time from Juan Uribe, and Halladay is out of the second inning.
19 pitches. Super effective.
