I’m doing my best not to dish out the blame, but there seems to be a lot of it to go around. Right now I really just want to commend Roy Halladay for another remarkable season, and an amazing effort in last night’s loss, and for the composure he showed after the game.
“I don’t care where you go, there’s no team that your guaranteed to win anything,” Halladay said. “We have an unbelievable team here. Winning the World Series is always going to be the ultimate goal.”
“When I came over here I didn’t think it was going to be easy,” Halladay added. “I knew it would be hard. I knew it’s not something you do every year. I really enjoy the process of going after it and playing these games and getting to this point in the season. Hopefully we get to a point where things to go our way. We’ll get back here and do it again.”
“This is by far the greatest place I’ve ever played – and the greatest fans that I’ve ever been around. That was as loud as I’ve ever heard it here. It was really a special feeling to be out there and have the fans behind you like that. I was just trying to go pitch to pitch and do everything I could. But it was really electric; it was something I’ll never forget.”
What an amazing guy.
You’ll get another chance Roy. I’m sure of it.
If it’s possible, stay positive.
I’ll have a few posts in the following days as we learn more about the fate of Ryan Howard and his injury. I will probably go into hibernation for a bit after that, but I think I’ll probably poke my head out of the cave here and there.
