The more I hear and read about Roy Halladay, the more I find myself getting annoyed at the people who for some reason find it impossible to spell or pronounce the man's name correctly. I know this sounds silly but it is driving my crazy. Matt HOLLiday is the guy who plays on the A's while Roy HALLaday plays for the Jays. The letter A makes an AHHHH sound people. And to the 12 people who spell it Halliday, just don't talk about him if you cant spell it. Its not like he has a name like Mientkiewicz. Oh well, enough with me being anal.
Last night, Halladay had another stellar outing for the Jays, pitching his 4th complete game of the season in which he gave up 6 hits and only 1 earned run. Crazy that it was his first win since June 7th.
It's too bad the Jays have fallen out of it so fast. There are in 4th place in the AL East and are 10 games behind the Boston Red Sox. While they aren't technically out of it yet, the chance of coming back at this point in the year with the number of injuries they still have to their pitching staff is pretty much slim to none. They would probably have a better chance if they were move out of the American League into the National League East.
Anyhow, here are a few pictures of the bat I got at the AAA Scranton game. It is my most prized baseball artifact as I have been trying to get a black Louisville slugger for soo long! Thanks to Shelley, truly a good man!
