What cap should Roy "Doc" Halladay wear when elected to the MLB Hall Of Fame

I really hope he goes in a Toronto Blue Jay, and I personally believe he has the same feelings because that's where it all started for him. That said, his two biggest achievements were a perfect game and a masterful no-hitter in the Playoffs were accomplished in Philadelphia. So, I believe he goes in with a Phillies cap.

I think his 12 years in Toronto will give the Jays the edge, although, I'd be ecstatic just to see Doc in the Hall, even with Philly.

He also won a Cy Young with Toronto which is a notable accomplishment. I really hope it'd be with a Blue Jays cap and that the hall wouldn't be swayed by the no hitter and perfect game. I forgot, is it up to the player or does the hall choose?

Easy there buddy boy, he is not a Hall of Famer
Best pitcher in baseball over a 10-year stretch (2002-2011). Two Cy Youngs, two runner-ups and two other top 5 finishes.

He's a Hall of Famer in my book, though he might not make it the first year (and who knows how crowded the ballot will be in 3 years).

And if you still want to use the wins standard, his winning percentage is 17th all-time, better than Roger Clemens, Sandy Koufax, Jim Palmer, Dizzy Dean, Juan Marichal and Bob Feller, among others.
 
I'm not sure it's a guarantee he goes in. I do believe he is a Hall of Famer but I thought Carlos Delgado was as well. If it happens it will be in a Blue Jays hat.

Ask Jack Morris. Winningest pitcher in 1980's 168-119 in his career had three 20 win seasons(254-186 overall) and played on 4 World Series winners. He didn't have the Cy Youngs like Halladay but I think Morris is a HOF'er.
