Doc dominates on Flashback Fridays

This post is about a week too late, but better late than not at all … right? After Roy Halladay’s stellar start just one week ago, I couldn’t help but notice that there was a distinct pattern every time Doc suited up in the powder blues – he dominates.

If you had the pleasure of catching Halladay starting on a Flashback Friday, you maybe have also noticed that Doc has been nearly unstoppable.

Over the past two seasons, Halladay has compiled a 7-0 record with a sparkling 1.27 during Friday home games. Along with 5 complete games, Doc’s K/9 on Flashback Fridays was 7.35, his BB/9 was 1.01 which made his K/BB ration an incredible 7.25.


If by some grace Roy Halladay is still part of the Blue Jays next year, make sure you see him work his magic on a Flashback Friday because it is more than worth the price of admission.

    Doc truly is considerate of his fans. He knows it's Friday night and people have places to go. Why drag a ball game three hours when he can work quickly and end it in two? We thank you, Doc, for allowing us to arrive at our parties on time.

    I think it's Halladay's personal goal to have his starts two and a half hours or less. Usually, he is under rather than over.
