Roy Halladay pitched against an awful, hopeless, last place squad yesterday. While on the surface such an opponent would seem ideal, sometimes these games- against bumbling, hapless, flawed "teams"- can trip up even the best of the big leagues. "They're only human", folks say. Well, in this case, that's where you're wrong. (Ominous music)
Unflappably focused, HLHIII was able to look past the M_ts staggering lack of ability and concentrate on getting the job done. And get it done he did, to the tune of a complete game victory. The line, donkeyfaceburgers: 9 IP, 7 H, 1 BB (don't panic), 5 cuttered, 3 so cuttered... all in an efficient 107 pitches.
He's so fargling awesome. Yay team!
