Roy Halladay met with reporters today and he invoked a little Billy Shakespeare when asked about the Cardinals. This sounds funner:
Q: Can you talk about the balance of being in touch with what the other team’s capable of, having the proper respect, but at the end of all that, thinking about what do I know I can do and what our team is capable of, so you don’t give too much respect or too little? That balance there.
Halladay: I heard a quote a long time ago, I came here to bury Caesar, not praise him. It’s true, I think we’re all well aware of how good the team is. We obviously have a respect for what they’ve done and how they’ve played, but you have to be confident going in that you’re going to be able to beat them. And you have to be confident the guys around you feel the same way, so it is important, I think we all don’t take them lightly. But at the same time I feel like without an arrogant tone to it, we believe we have a team that can go out and get the job done.
Well then, death to Caesar!
