So Roy Halladay Pitched Yesterday (8.25.13 v Diamondbacks)




 zOMG yes please.

David Maialetti, Philly.com

Raise your hand if you think you could throw a baseball well three months after shoulder surgery. Raise your hand if you think you could raise your hand three months after shoulder surgery. Lastly, raise your hand if you were thrilled yesterday, upon watching noted hero and bolg muse Roy Halladay not only return roughly three short months-- and ahead of the planned schedule following Saturday's clusterduck-- following shoulder surgery, but throw six strong and get the win against the #godbacks.



No, his velocity hasn't fully returned yet, but HLHIII was able to effectively locate pitches (bro trust me the home plate ump was a total donkey and didn't help matters but no biggie Roy got this), maintain control of at-bats, motivate center fielders to jump over the wall and catch home runs, and integrate a pretty nasty curve in his return yesterday. All of that, yo, is cause for celebration.

"WOOHOO THAT'S GREAT RICK I REALLY AM HAPPY AND APPRECIATE YOUR THOUGHTS AND, I MEAN, IT'S A SRHPY THAT'S NOT AGAINST THE DELMARVA SCRAPPIN' HAMMERDOGS OR WHATEVER BUT STILL YOU KNOW I'M GOING TO ASK FOR THE LINE BECAUSE I NEED TO KNOW I NEED TO KNOW TELL ME ZEE DUB ARR CAUSE I NEED TO KNOW!!!!"

Kudos for Delmarva Scrappin' Hammerdogs.

"THANKS I LIKED THAT TOO : ) "

Gladly: 6 IP, 4 H (one cue ball), 2 ER, 2 K (2C), 94 pitches, 0 arm asplosions, WIN

God that was awesome.
