Doc Halladay is off to a great start, making opposing batters look as ridiculous as this so far.  In 7 games, he has posted a 6-1 record, 1.45 ERA, 48K in 56 IP with only 7 walks, along with 3 CG, and 2 shutouts. It'd be impossible to keep up that pace for an entire season. While he's definitely been no Old Hoss Radbourn, he's probably been the best pitcher in baseball so far.

He is sure to have a rough patch and/or miss a start or two due to a minor injury. And luckily, the shaky bullpen has yet to blow a save for him. That's bound to happen a few times too. But he will likely get 33+ starts, so I think a 25-5 record with say 5 no decisions or something is possible. The last pitcher to win 25+ games was Bob Welch on the A's all the way back in 1990. Halladay probably has the best shot of anyone in recent years to do it.
