Roy Halladay on Cardinals: “I Came Here to Bury Caesar, Not Praise Him”

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!

  1. My man crush on Roy just reached an new alltime high!

  2. i literally can not wait for this post season to start. i feel like this team’s intensity is about to go up a notch that nobody can contend with. halladay, lee, and even oswalt know this is going to be the best shot they’ve ever had at winning this thing, i have a feeling they’re going to be even more unhittable than they already are. go phillies!

  3. what a bad ass quote!

  4. Shirts available starting when? No, seriously. This dude is a post-season t-shirt phrasing machine.

  5. Roy. All Class, All the Time.

    Cliff Lee may be a Magical Steed but Halladay is a BOSS!

  8. “Cry ‘Havoc!’ and let slip the dogs of war.” I think that follows later in the movie.

  9. Et tu, Halladay?

  10. I think I just pre’d in my pants, let me check………yup

  11. WOW, just WOW…..the man is total class. I want a t-shirt now! That is just incredible….I am so AMPED!

  12. You go on with your bad self Doc! I’ll be at game one wearing this shirt:
    Let’s Go Phillies! Let’s Go!

  13. *Swoon* Confidence without arrogance is so effing hot. Go get ’em, boys!

  14. Has anyone else found themselves completely fired up after hearing that. It’s time to put the women and children to bed and go lookin’ for dinner!
    @BB and @The Great…BOSS is right.
    It’s only gonna get funner!

  15. Deadspin just picked this up and shouted you out. nice

  16. Not to be outdone, Cliff Lee was quoted as saying, “Friends, Philadelphians, countrymen, lend me your ears. On Sunday I will piss excellence into the Cardinals fearful faces.”

  17. Shakespeare is good, but I’d rather have heard Roy quote ‘The Berserker’ from the WWF after he would pummel his hapless opponent and stick his head through the ropes, crying out to his manager Mr. Fuji saying, “I love it Fuji, there’s no competition for us!”

  18. he should have finished it like mean girls…”we should just totally stab caesar!”

  19. RAJ in there is absolutely the best…
