Ah, I remember the halcyon days of having The Big Unit or whatever he was called pitching win after win after win. He must have retired by now, right?
Randy Johnson has bounced around a couple of teams and is now with the Giants... his season was cut very short this year after he got a shoulder injury while batting, bizarrely, and really at 45 or so he should be retiring... but he hasn't done so officially, and may very well not do. Jamie Moyer at Philadelphia is 46 now I think and is still pitching
And yes, Roy Halladay has always been nasty... his consistency is what makes him one of the undeniable top 3 in the game, and I don't see that changing any time in the next 5 years at least, health permitting. It looks like he is throwing cannonballs sometimes, the way hitters don't seem to be able to hit the ball any harder than a weak trickle to the infielders.
Steve> I was waiting for you to chime in
When you posted that picture a while back of you and the lady at the Rogers Centre, I wasn't just putting two and two together and working out where it was, I actually recognised it... I did do the stadium tour lolz, even though I didn't really understand the game at the time. FTR, I saw games at Old Yankee Stadium, Old Shea Stadium and Fenway last September when I went on my hollibops. And I'm still undecided on The Bigs... it just seems too arcade-y, and my attraction to the game is a very "purist" one. I get enough mileage out of Out Of The Park in a statty Champ Manager way to really need to baseball game, although I might give the demo another try, just for you
