Tip your cap to Roy Halladay

I apologize for the lateness of this post, but almost 24 hours after it happened, Roy Halladay’s one-hitter over the New York Yankees is still relevant and fresh in the minds of Blue Jays fans.

He silenced his critics by shutting down the best team in baseball, and the only hit of the night came from rookie Ramiro Pena. Maybe if Deter was in the game, it would have been a no hitter.
Even with the bases loaded in the sixth inning and Alex Rodriguez at the dish, Halladay buckled down and got the cruical out in what was the turning point of that game.

It was great to see vintage Roy Halladay back on the mound doing what he does best and I think last night’s effort alone is deserving of a Cy Young award.


Let’s all make sure that we tip our caps to the best pitcher in baseball today.
