Roy Halladay Cracks Bloomberg’s Power 100 List

It's about damn time.

Roy Halladay, who had never been on Bloomberg's list of the most powerful figures in sports, came in at number 30 in their latest ranking:

This list takes into account not only a player's on field performance, but also his off the field marketing potential. Peyton Manning leads the list, as Halladay lands just behind Chris Johnson. Bloomberg notes his lack of a significant endorsement deal as a reason why he is not ranked higher.

ZOMG maybe he doesn't need to be bothered with such things- like an abundance of endorsements and calling into Howard Eskin's show. Ironically, Hollywood Howard lands at number 67 on the list- he was 14 last year. Weird to see the decline considering Howard was everywhere this year.

Of course, Halladay is on the cover of the upcoming MLB 2K11. Speaking of MLB 2K11 (transition!), Brian Wilson promoted the game on the otherwise unwatchable George Lopez show last night. Figures that the guy who will haunt our memories for years to come is on the payroll helping to promote the game with Doc on the cover. Even still, he's damn funny. Video after the jump.

    Brian Wilson’s the dumbest most contrived person I have ever heard talk. I would honestly be extremely disappointed if he ever ends up in red pinstripes.
    He made a few semen jokes, dyed his beard, and wore two hats ON THE GEORGE LOPEZ SHOW. That definitely misses being funny and works its way in around three steps above trying too hard. Also he does not have his own video game, I’m pretty sure thats Roy Halladay on the cover. He’s also definitely not the best closer in baseball, he’s a good player don’t get me wrong but he’s by no means the best. He’s just another dumb guy who thinks contrived semen jokes make one hilarious. I disagree

  • The Pittsburgh Penguins: Your favorite NHL team would be that good too if they had as many first and second overall picks as the Pens did from 03-06 January 28, 2011 at 6:23 pm

    Brian Wilson will be the next Jonathan Broxton when it comes to the Phils. Count on it.
    He really isn’t that funny either.
