Halladay has compiled 65.9 WAR according to Baseball-Reference, which exceeds the total of Hall-of-Fame pitchers Bob Feller, Juan Marichal, and Hal Newhouser. FanGraphs agrees with this total with an even higher number, 67.6 WAR, which is based on his career 3.39 FIP. It goes to show that both the traditional ERA and sabermetric FIP both agree he has been an exceptional pitcher over his career.
Halladay's 2012 wasn't wonderful, but even then he was still worth 2.5 WAR according to FanGraphs. His 2013 was pretty disastrous, however, compiling a -0.8 WAR. As it turned out, Halladay threw his last Major League pitch in 2013. The Steamer projection systems still saw Halladay being able to pitch 25 starts at a 3.8 FIP (3.9 ERA) level, compiling about 2.2 WAR. In early 2014, however, he decided to hang them up, signing a one-day contract with the Blue Jays to officially retire with Toronto. In any case, he's definitely Hall-of-Fame material.
Tragically, however, in 2017 Roy was killed in a plane crash in the Gulf of Mexico while piloting his own private plane. Even more tragically, it was found during Roy's autopsy that he had died with several suspicious drugs in his system. Whatever reasons for those drugs to be in his system, it was a very untimely death for someone who was only 40 years old. He left behind a family and a good position as a mental coach for the Blue Jays' young pitchers.
Roy will be eligible for the Hall of Fame in 2019. It's likely he'll be elected posthumously.
Thanks for the memories, Roy.
