ROY HALLADAY RUMORS & GOSSIP

Phils GM has no problems running Roy Halladay into the ground

Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro is far and away one of our favorite punching bags here at TOC. Yet, most of the things he says are just stupid as opposed to downright offensive.

The detour came last Tuesday night, when Doc threw only...

In a classy move, the injured Roy Halladay summoned reporters before tonight’s game so that he could offer some conciliatory words to Phillies fans. Below is a snippet of Roy’s comments.
