Cute. Don’t get me wrong, I’m happy Doc is able to enjoy his cargo shorts, double strappin Golden Years (in his late freaking 30’s while being a muli-millionaire without ever having to work again). But man oh man do I miss Roy Halladay and the days when the Phillies were
great good adequate horrible fucking watchable. Any chance we can inject a full baby’s worth of stem cells into that right wing and get him ready for Spring Training? Send him to Germany now and he’ll running laps in the snow at CBP by Valentine’s Day.
The greatest athletes to never win it all – Marino, Barkley, Ewing, Moss, Sanders, Malone, Teddy Ballgame. I don’t think it’s that far of a stretch to put Halladay in that conversation. Dude is a first ballot HOF’er who was the best pitcher in the game for a decade. Sure, his final 2 years was like watching your childhood dog slowly die. The spirit was willing but the body was falling apart right in front of our eyes, but still. Doc was all heart and pitched to perfection for a long, long time.
