Now that's a pitcher!
Roy Halladay pitched 10 innings for the Toronto Blue Jays last night, as they beat the Detroit Tigers 2-1. Complete games are rare enough in today's game, let alone a guy pitching extra frames. Most overpriced starting pitchers go 6 innings and think they've done their job. Halladay is a stud, a beast, an old school kind of guy and wants to finish what he started...and I love that! It's probably not long before rotations go to 6 men because these modern day pussies, oops I mean pitchers, can't take the workload and organizations caudal them. As recently as the 1980's, teams were still using the 4-man rotation, with guys going 300 innings a season. The evolution of the game isn't always a positive thing in my opinion.
