Doc, We’re Going To Need A Bigger Boat

This is just too much awesomeness for one boat: Cy Young Award winners Roy Chris Carpenter, Roy Halladay … and oh yeah, B.J. Ryan. Along with pro fisherman Skeet Reese.

Hat tip to Kevin Gray of Gray Matter for the photo, you can read more about their trip on Skeet Reese’s website.

Apparently Skeet and Roy came across a naked man sitting on a tree after he was attacked by an anaconda (you can’t make this stuff up, seriously).

2 Years Ago Today: the Roy Halladay Trade

It’s hard to believe, but 2 years ago to this day the Toronto Blue Jays traded away a cornerstone of their franchise: Roy Halladay to the Philadelphia Phillies for prospects Kyle Drabek, Travis d’Arnaud, and Michael Taylor (who was flipped for Brett Wallace).

After 14 years with the Blue Jays organization, Doc got his wish and was traded to a contender for a shot at World Series championship. There were Halladay trade all throughout 2009, but the trade finally went down just before the Winter Meetings.

The trade itself wasn’t that shocking because we saw it all coming, but it was just the fact that Roy Halladay would no longer be in a Blue Jays uniform that got to me.

It was nice to see him pitch during the Canada Day weekend series at the Rogers Centre this past summer, and it was just look the good old days - except this time around he was wearing red pinstripes and pitching for the other guys.

Nevertheless, I always fantasize that once the Blue Jays become perennial contenders again, Roy Halladay will want to come back to Toronto and he can finally win that World Series ring he’s been gunning for.

Miss you, Doc.

The essence of all beautiful art, all great art, is gratitude. 
- Friedrich Nietzsche

Nietzsche is right. This painting is a masterpiece because the artist Frank Scicchitano is, like all of us, simply grateful that we can enjoy the body of work of Harry Leroy Halladay III.

I would ask which painting is more erotic, this one or Scicchitano’s portrait of Fabio, but we all know the answer. Get the hell out of here Fabio, you’re out of your league.

Roy Halladay has never looked so beautiful.

King Carlos and Doc. My heart just welled up.

Roy Halladay walks off into the sunset as a Blue Jay. He will sign a one-day contract with the club and officially retire as a Toronto Blue Jay.
Guys, it’s getting a little dusty in here …
