Philadelphia’s Doc Halladay pitched the second no hitter in post-season baseball history and missed a perfect game by just one measly walk. Halladay did pitch a perfect game back in June, so he’s probably cool with his no hitter. Interesting, to me at least, is that after laboring in obscurity up in Toronto for twelve years, the 33-year-old eschewed free agency and took a three year deal with the Phillies for $60 million. Apparently he could have received far more had he gone the free agent route, but he wanted to play for a contender. And after all, how much money do you need? But good for him – I think I’ll start rooting for the Phillies. Haven’t checked on the Yankees yet but with any luck, they’re losing
UPDATE: Yankees won, but a good game, with lead changes, come-backs and all the essential elements of great baseball. As for Halladay, he’s a 6′ 6″ Mormon, with all sorts of charitable acts under his belt. Babe Ruth must be spinning in his grave.
