What better way to celebrate my 200th post than by heralding the incomparable Roy Halladay on a historical achievement? Huzzah! In his inaugural playoff appearance, “Doc” has hurled just the second postseason no-hitter in baseball history! Not to mention his second of this year.
Anyone who read my post from earlier today is aware that I am no Phillies fan. But on occasions such as this, it is impossible not to throw one’s biases to the wayside. I have always held Mr. Halladay in high regard, and congratulate him most sincerely on this accomplishment. This is what we watch baseball for, is it not?
Cliff Lee turned in a fine performance for Texas this afternoon (keep-a-rollin’, Rangers!) and in this, “the year of the pitcher,” it is to be hoped we’ll see a few more gems. None, though, is likely to match this.
