Roy Halladay to retire (1 Viewer)

:wub: One of the classiest players to wear a Jays uniform. Hopefully he becomes the 2nd player to wear the Jays hat in the hall of fame.

I really hope so. My favorite baseball player of all time and quite possibly the greatest professional sports player to we've ever had here in Toronto*.

*There have been other greats but few have played during their prime and for as long a tenure as Doc

 
Took put an ad in Philly today thanking the fans.

The best thing in Toronto sports in the last 20 years (not saying a lot)

:thumbup:

 
Apparently he was going to sign a 1 year deal with the Jays this season but when he tested his arm in instructional league, he was still topping out in the mid 80s :(

 
Roy was a beast. HOF for me
I was looking at this the other day.

If Halladay is a HOF, isn't Schilling as well?

Halladay has the Cy Youngs and Schilling has the postseason track record, but otherwise their career numbers are more alike than different.

I think both should be in. Crowded ballot is becoming the problem though. I'd probably need more than 10 spots if I was a voter now.

 
One of the greats. I have shown my son (9 years old now) his motion and approach to pitching over and over and over. This guy is a pros pro. Class act and embodied every letter in the word professional.

Thanks for the great years Roy.

I would need more than 10 spots if I didn't vote for the known steroid users.

Agree on the lacking post-season resume for Roy. To be fair though, when given a shot at the post-season, Roy's 3-2 with a 2.37 ERA over 38 innings, including the no-hitter against the Reds.

Shame he went out the way he did with injuries, but he was easily my favorite Phillie while he was in a uniform. His work ethic and determination in-game made you want him to throw a no-hitter every time out. The Charlie walk to the mound and walk back after a Roy stare down, followed a lot of the time by an inning-closing out ritual was just so much fun to watch. Will never forget the PG in Miami, remember thinking by the 5th "He's going to f'ing do this." No hitting support, and got it done 1-0.

This isn't even scratching the surface on the career he had with the Blue Jays. Incredible guy while we had him, great career overall. Wasn't always easy for him either, he went down to the minors at one point to come back and start the dominant part of his career. He'll be a HoF debate, I think you can make cases for and against with performance over the course of his career/length of the career vs. the rest of the worthy field of SP's. Hope he gets it.

:hatsoff:
