CY YOUNG FOR THE DOCTOR

It’s official, Roy Halladay of the Philadelphia Phillies has been awarded the National League Cy Young award.  He had a great regular season,  going 21-10 with a 2.44 ERA and 219 strikeouts. He threw a perfect game and a no-hitter in the same season. What makes it more remarkable is that he’s doing it at the age of 33.  Not old but definitely on the back 9 of his career.  I know you’re not supposed to include the post season but if you did, I might lean a little towards that kid up in the ‘frisco Bay.  Lincecum won the games when it counted (not to say that Halladay didn’t) and if it wasn’t for his pitching and out-dueling the immortal Cliff Lee, the Giants wouldn’t have one the Series. Hats off to Halladay, it’s too bad he didn’t get out of Toronto earlier.

San Francisco Giants: WHO ARE THESE GUYS?

I’ll be the first to admit that I never thought the Giants would make it this far.  I didn’t think they’d make the playoffs.  I didn’t think they’d get past the Atlanta Braves, and I certainly didn’t think they were going to dominate the Philadelphia Phillies. I can’t even name more than 3 players on their roster.  There’s 1 player who is batting over .300 (Cody Ross).  Didn’t the Dodgers let this guy go? I do know one thing though, their pitching is the best in the game. Tim Lincecum and Matt Cain are ill.  Lincecum’s going up against Roy Halladay in Game 5 and don’t be surprised if the kid out-duels Doc again.  It’s nice to see a team from California other than the Lakers making some noise.  Looks like we’re going to have a Giants-Rangers World Series.  Bad ratings but who doesn’t want to see Lincecum go up against Cliff Lee.  Too bad these guys can’t pitch every game. One last note, how sad is it to see Barry Bonds before the game, trying to rally the crowd up. Take your girly voice and your post-steroid body back to the rock you crawled out of.  Sorry, I can’t forgive him.
