This Might be Why Roy Halladay Won’t Talk to Howard Eskin


He's too busy being a beast. That's why.

[Full story on Eskin's rant on Halladay]

Here's a picture of Doc, allegedly taken today, running around the warning track at Citizen's Bank Park… in shorts. Approximate temperature at the time of the picture? Nine degrees.

The person who posted this on the Phillies message boards says his friend, who is there replacing seats (Phillies are adding a tacky-like substance to the cement in the second level, which requires them to remove seats) posted it to Facebook. 

Halladay was in Philly this weekend, but I do question the picture a bit, since there was snow on the field last week and, well, it has been freezing out. However, if you look closely, there does appear to be snow in the bullpen and in Ashburn Alley.

Not a 100% on this, but that there seems to be Roy Halladay, in shorts, running around in nine degree weather. Fucking beast.

In other pitcher news, we do know these are real: Pictures from Kyle Kendrick's wedding.

Full of win.

  1. It’s definitely not baseball season though. No cameras in the outfield, where there would be above the 409 mark and n the cutout in the top left of the brick. So, either way, Doc is being a beast in less-than-desirable weather. It’s either before mid-February or after late October.

  2. 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 says:

    Hahah poor J.A. Happ

  3. Pretty sure they cover the field when it snows So that’s not a surprise. The banners and concession stands are covered up, and the Ivy and bushes are everygreen. So perhaps.

  4. in picture 53, is that guy in the blue tie next to the old man in the phillies hat blanton sucking down a cold one? better be a light fat boy!

  5. Who cares about Kendricks wedding, they will be divorced in 6 months…Halladay is from Colorado so id say this slight cold spell here doesnt bother him, and that is why we have him..hes a machine…Cannot wait for baseball season, my first year home from the army and i get to watch an entire baseball season!!!!

  6. Dude is a fucking tiger on the prowl. He is looking over his field and ready to protect it. I hope someone video taped it and sent it out to all the other National League teams.

  7. PS:
    That’s Halladay at his place in FL.
    Didn’t you hear? He had his replica of the Skydome torn town and replaced with a replica of CBP. He want’s to feel that everyday is game-day in his back yard. Man’s a TFG.

  8. No snow on the field? Ummmm, it did rain last Tuesday. Not many people in Northeast Philly have snow on their sidewalks.

  9. I finally figured out how to get the numbers of the wedding pictures!! Seriously, WTF is that going on in Picture 51???? She has a portrait of them on her toenail??? This is literally the tackiest thing I have EVER SEEEN!!!

  10. I like how Kendrick is letting Halladay kiss his wife on their wedding day… he knows his place in the rotation… dead last…
    It’s gonna be a sloppy honeymoon.
    I almost gagged a little bit just typing that…

    their favorite site for one reason or the next. You don;t have to be fake, just forgive yourself for the bad pictures taken at a bad moment and praise yourself for the ones that give you respect.

    engaging, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head.
