So Roy Halladay Pitched Yesterday (4.5.10 vs. Natinals)


This photo of Roy being excellent is from Getty Images.

Willie Harris, when asked of facing Roy Halladay, recounts dolefully a section of verse from A.E. Housman:

Yonder see the morning blink:
The sun is up, and up must I,

To wash and dress and eat and drink
And look at things and talk and think
And work, and God knows why.

I'm not one for overselling things, but yesterday was basically perfect.

Roy's first outing with the good guys qualifies as "Efficient, Phillies Roy", largely because--and this is relatively simplistic, I confess--he didn't have to throw eleventy five pitches and carry a donkey patrol. Welcome!

There were a host of factors at play, and admittedly one of those is that the Natinals stink, but let's face the facts, folks: our offense is ridiculous, and so is Doc. Seven innings, nine Ks--3 CUTTERED/6 SOCUTTERED--one run (nice fist pump, Zimmerman), 1.14 WHIP, and only 88 pitches (59 of them for strikes). And it looked easy. And he had an RBI! This is going to be a fun season.


ZWR READER GREG TOOK THIS PICTURE!!!

It's so good I'm posting it twice.

  1. I saw that guy at the tailgate and had to compliment him.

    I had a boner the entire game. Until the bottom of the 7th, that is, when the concession stand refused to sell me more beer.

    I just realized the second cutterific photo is not from opening day. Suspicious.
