He was at it again; intimidating Yankee hitters with his intense pitching face, and hurling 98 MPH demons past them. Aside from one meatball served up to Hideki Matsui, Roy Halladay was nearly unstoppable picking up his 15th win of the season.
Scattering 5 hits across 7 innings work, Halladay was his usual dominant-self. The only explanation I can offer for why he didn’t go the distance is that he wasn’t used to having a 13-run cushion to work with. Doc pitches extremely well under pressure, and maybe he got a little too comfortable knowing it would take a complete and utter meltdown for the Jays to lose this one.
It didn’t help that Cliff Lee also won his 18th game yesterday, which pretty much solidifies him as the American League Cy Young winner. Speaking of which - wouldn’t it be crazy if CC Sabathia won back-to-back Cy Young awards in different leagues?
That’s just another reason why I am the officially the stupidest Fantasy Player in the world for trading C.C. for George Sherrill and Vladdamir Guerrero. Such an IDIOT!
