Somewhere, Roy Halladay is Smiling

Typically, Roy Halladay isn’t one to crack a smile. But after sending down 27 Florida Marlins in order, he was beaming from ear to ear.

Not really much to say about this one, except … congratulations to Roy Halladay on his perfect game.

Frankly, we all knew it was possible – it was just a matter of time before it happened. Halladay came very close a couple of times during his time with the Blue Jays, but he finally sealed the deal.


This is just another notch in the bedpost of Halladay’s storied career, which is still far from over.

I’m sure Doc will treasure the game ball, but the only thing to top this would be a World Series ring. And he’s already well on his way to accomplishing that milestone, too.

    Here, here. Story has it that Roy walked into a standing ovation from the Philly clubhouse. Doc smiled and pointed to Carlos Ruiz. Class.

    Amazing, I would've expected nothing less from Doc. I also heard that he was speechless when the reporters asked him how he felt.

    Check out this quote from Jason Frasor:

    "Some men, Frasor said, prepare to pitch. And some men, he said, prepare to win. But "Doc," Frasor said, "prepares to dominate."

    That may be the new mantra
    "prepare to dominate"
    beautiful. Congrats Roy

    I love that quote about Halladay, and it's so true. They should make Phillies T-Shirts with that quote on it!
