If I weren't such a religious man I might just mistake Halladay as the Messiah.

Actually brought a tear to my eye.

Amazing.

Corey said...

i still can't get over the lack of offense after the second inning. disturbing.

halladay also threw high percentage of sliders for balls. that's worrisome.

in additio, the fans didn't seem to be really "into" this game.

i say reds in 5.

He is the Messiah

Praises to the Phillies most high Doc Halladay

Corey, you are a funny guy. The only thing in your statement that has any relevance is the comment about the offense.

GM-Carson said...

Jayson Werth did watch strikes whiz by him all day long, but whatever. Bask in the awesomeness of Roy Halladay.

If I hadn't seen it, I wouldn't have believed it. Somebody wake up Don Larson. I feel so proud to be a fan of this team. The second no hitter in post season history. Amazing.

SirAlden said...

Corey needs 'someone to scratch his itch'.

Aaron said...

11 - 1 = 10

I am glad in that picture all the Apostles are keeping their distance from him. That's how they treated him in the dugout!

Wow. I just downloaded the last out of the No-Hitter. Brandon Phillips hit a squibler in front of and to the first base side of the plate.

Watch it in Slo-Mo you will see that Phillips dropped he bat right on top of the ball, then ran 3 feet to the left (and out of) the baseline, in the infield grass, so that Chooch first had to pick up the ball next to the bat and then throw a perfect rainbow at high speed over Phillips head to Howard for the Final Out.

Perfect Throw. Perfect ending. Scary.

I wonder if he would have been called out for running outside the baseline to block the throw.

GM-Carson said...

Once I saw that bat in play directly beside the ball I wondered if Chooch was unable to make the play what the umps would have done. It's not like it was a broken bat, Phillips placed it there.

Stark goes a little overboard on the hyperbole, but it's a beautiful thing to behold because it's our team!
