Look closely at the photos above and tell me what you see. At first glance, you might see another typical bobblehead that looks nothing like the person it is supposed to be. The face is not very Roy Halladay, but what else is new? This lovely collectible is available for purchase at MLB.com and was brought to our attention by this Halladay fan blog. Have you figured it out yet? For those of you who haven’t, we’ll just spell it out for you. This thing pretty much throws right and left-handed.
The leg kick and body position are accurate, but somehow the glove ended up on The Doc’s right hand and the ball in his left. I guess we should just assume he had taken his glove off to clean the ball and was about to put it back on but decided he felt like throwing a pitch in the meantime. If that’s the case, we’re wrong and this piece of memorabilia makes perfect sense.
UPDATE: Because of people like us who like to make fun of people, the MLB has pulled this item from their inventory.

Bobbleheads have always been a popular way to pay homage to the superstars in Major League Baseball. Superstars like Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Roy Halladay. With two Cy Young awards, a perfect game and a playoff no-hitter under his belt, Halladay has quickly become one of the most prominent righty hurlers in the league. The only problem is, someone forgot to tell the makers of...
First and foremost, bobbleheads are stupid. I don't care enough to look back into the history of bobbleheads or the history of bobbleheads used as giveaways or sold by Major League Baseball clubs, but it is now officially time for the the bobblehead era to end in baseball.The reason? MLB.com created a bobblehead of the best pitcher in the game over the last ten years... And...
With tonight’s 5-2 loss, the Phillies dropped their second straight to the Washington Nationals. Their fourth consecutive loss drops them two games below .500. Just when it seemed like the Phillies turned things around, they go back to their losing ways.HALLADAY NOT HIS BEST-Roy Halladay struggled through six innings. He allowed five earned runs on nine hits. He walked...
What kind of hammerhead shark designed this bobble head? The doll has Doc Halladay in his wind-up, ready to throw with the glove on his pitching hand! This either had to be designed somewhere in Pakistan, or by my 80 year old grandmother.
Roy Halladay made a rare radio appearance today on Mad Dog Radio this morning on the Evan & Phillips show.
On the idea that he could be traded/leave the Phillies at some point:
"I want to finish my career in Philadelphia and that's really all I'm focused on at this point...I enjoy my teammates, I enjoy Philadelphia, and really this is where I want to be."...

The Washington Nationals used a four run third inning against Roy Halladay to earn their second win of the series over the Philadelphia Phillies last night, 5-2. With the win the Nats victory, they have improved to 26-17 and will go for their first sweep of the season Wednesday night against Cole Hamels.
Steve Lombardozzi, Bryce Harper, Ian Desmond, and yes, Jordan Zimmermann...
Roy Halladay loses his first start against the Nationals as the Phils’ losing streak rises to four games as they lose to the Nats, 5-2.
The Phils took the lead in the second as, with one man on, and with one man out, Hector Luna hits an RBI ground-rule double, scoring Hunter Pence, who had started the inning off with a single, then moved up to second base on Carlos Ruiz’s ground...
Alright, so we realize it’s been an all-out Harper fest in these parts lately. He’s collected multiple hits in 4 out of 5 ballgames and last night he went up against Roy Halladay (a man some 15 years his senior) for the first time.
Flash back to this spring training quote:

Hector Luna provided an early advantage for the Phillies in the 2nd inning with a RBI ground-rule double over the center field fence. The bats went silent afterwards, however, as the offense only was able to produce one more run during the remainder of the...
Watching the 2012 Philadelphia Phillies is much like it was watching the 1984 Phillies so many years ago. The ’84 team was a team full of talent and a team expected to compete. But in the end, the 1984 Phillies marked the down fall of the Phillies franchise for many years. Could 2012 mark the same in Phillies history?
The parallels between the two teams are many. Both teams had...
Just another one of those games in which you'd rather throw your tv out of the window than have to watch Roy Halladay suffer another loss. Charlie Manuel posted his 80,000th lineup of the season... It wasn't one we'll be seeing in more games down the stretch.
Hector Luna, tonight's first baseman, hit a ground rule double in the bottom of the second, scoring Hunter...
