Just What The Doc Ordered

Roy Halladay waited many years to pitch in the playoffs, but the wait was worth it. Earlier today, Halladay gave one of the greatest pitching performances of all time, n0-hitting the Reds and giving up only one walk. Halladay joined Don Larsen of the Yankees as the only pitcher to throw a no-hitter or perfect game in the postseason. Carlos Ruiz saved the day with a game ending fielding play. I’m hoping that the parade will be on a weekend so that I don’t have to cancel class. What were your feelings as you watched the game? Comment below. Photo from Philly.com

    Don’t count your chickens yet Mr. Prof Larry. Still 10 victories to achieve.

    Watching Halladay’s no-hitter was like being an eyewitness to DaVinci painting the Mona Lisa or The Last Supper. Welcome to baseball’s version of Masterpiece Theater.

    The Reds looked like doomed men at the guillotine during the French Revolution meeting their fate one after another. They had no chance of survival. Heads rolled, and I loved it. Best individual athletic performance from a Phila. athlete ever.

    Is it possible that the # of post season no hitters as a % of total post season games played (2 out of 1245) is actually lower (I think) than the # of perfect games as a % of total major league games ever played (20 out of a damn lot)? Someone do the math please-it’s giving me a smashing headache.

    Cody Ross spelled backwards is “S’Sorry Doc”.
