Oh hey nothing to see here just Roy Halladay whose career has taken a mysterious downturn after nagging injuries and a seeming inability to pitch in the heat has chipped away at his effectiveness and velocity and a recent stomach bug caused him to OH MY GOD HE LOST 10 POUNDS IN TWO DAYS.
Roy Halladay has lost 10 pounds over the last few days, but he hopes to be strong enough to make his next start Saturday in Sarasota.
“I’m feeling better,” he said late Tuesday morning. “My stomach is better. I’m trying to get my strength back. I’m a little weak from not eating and passing fluids.”
First, that’s disgusting. Second, we’ve all had nasty stomach bugs, and while Halladay has substantially more extra (muscle) weight to shed than us mere humans, losing 10 pounds in two days is still a bit extreme, especially when you consider the fact that he was at the ballpark on both Sunday and Monday. Generally, the type of stomach bug that causes you to lose 10 pounds in two days also forces you to not get out of bed and pitch in a Major League Baseball game (!!!). Yeah, I’m still concerned about Doc.
