Is this irony or what?

Postby AKhomebrewer » Fri Aug 26, 2005 3:10 pm

From KFFL, via Rotoworld:
Aug 26 Indians.MLB.com's Jared S. Hopkins reports Toronto Blue Jays SP Roy Halladay has been nominated by Major League Baseball for the Comeback Player of the Year award.

Be interesting if he pulls off a second 'comeback' in the same season. Although the Jays have scheduled him for another MRI this week :-o. That can't be a good sign.

It's a shame that he's going to win it, hands down (in the NL) O:-)

THanks for the update POgo....

I think Sexson and Griffey should win it... Why should Halladay win it if he got hurt again...

Damn you're right, I forgot about the jinx aspect. I take back what I said...Junior is actually a darkhorse candidate to win as far as I'm concerned. :-o

Griffey won't win. I think Floyd has a better chance than Griffey but I think it will be Pettitte and I couldn't really argue against the choice.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Didn't pitch at all in '03.
Only tossed 29.2 innings in '04.

Has 33 saves and a 2.96 ERA this year.

Wickman gets my vote. :-°
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
