As we all know, Roy Halladay had something of a "crummy" season in 2012, posting the worst (100 innings or more) ERA in his career (4.49) and struggling with an injury that was variously described as a strain of his right latissimus dorsi muscle, and a flat-out shoulder injury. Halladay himself referred to "changes" that were observed in the shoulder, adding to the region-wide sense of dread associated with any kind of injury, much less a shoulder injury to a 35 year old with an incredibly heavy workload.
