Roy Halladay Retires As A Toronto Blue Jay

Anyone thinking, myself included, that the Yankees could and should sign the 36 year old Roy Halladay should be making other plans as he retired today. Halladay signed a one day contract with the Toronto Blue Jays to retire with the team where he made his name, Doc.

Much respect to Roy for going out while he was still somewhat on top and going out on his own terms rather than dragging it out for one more season. Halladay retires as one of the two men in Major League history to ever have a no hitter in the postseason, the other being Don Larsen with his perfect game in the World Series.

A tip of the cap to Halladay for both his on the field and off the field product and being a class act that represented the game of Major League Baseball so well. Good luck in everything you do post baseball and thank you again for everything that you have done, it is appreciated.
