Roy Halladay is The Immortal

“That’s how we labeled him: This guy is The Immortal, we’re all just humans, and we’re lucky enough to play baseball with him,” said Cole Hamels, one of the Phillies’ aces who, postseason included, threw 262 1/3 innings in 2008 and remains awed by Halladay pushing similar boundaries annually. “He made it seem so easy, and at the same time, when the opposing team thinks it had got to him, he flipped a switch, and it was, like, ‘Nope.’ It’s like when you try to scare someone, and he knows you’re trying to scare him, and it doesn’t work. It’s embarrassing.”

    I’m not sure if you’ve ever seen/read this post, but it is arguably the single-greatest blog post ever written about Roy Halladay: http://www.ghostrunneronfirst.com/2008/11/day-in-life-existence-of-roy-halladay.html
