In my PPIBTH algorithm I have Pettite 5 steps ahead of Roy which is 2 x a two step plus 1.

Someone brought up the fact only a few HOFs ERA are over 3.6 etc. I am not sure what an accepted reduction in ERA for AL pitchers is allowed when comparing them to career NL counterparts or pre 1973 seasons for HOFs. I would imagine over a 18 year career your ERA would be .3 less. Andy did really well in his brief time with the Astros for example era wise i believe, but havent checked it out.

My algorithm may be a bit biased as it stands for 'Prove Pettite is better than Halladay' so there may be some markers in there that are slightly tainted.

Nolan Ryan 6th in career fWAR among pitchers with 107.2 ... SIXTH! with a career ERA of 3.19, career FIP of 2.97 and 9.55 K/9 inn

Petite- 30th in career fWAR with 68.9, ERA of 3.85, FIP of 3.74 K/9 of 6.64

Halladay- 38th in career fWAR with 65.2, ERA of 3.38 FIP of 3.39 K/9 of 6.93

It's pretty obvious who the best pitcher is
