  1. Shocker: Roy Halladay may sleep in a little now, run less

    Feb 14, 2014, 11:16 AM EDT

    Phillies Spring 2014 07

    Roy Halladay returning to the Philadelphia Phillies organization as a pitching instructor this spring was a move greeted overwhelmingly positive by fans. Roy’s exactly the kind of guy you want melding the minds and arms of the team’s pitchers of tomorrow. But when word of his return as an instructor first broke, many wondered whether…

  2. Charlie Manuel to be inducted to Phillies Wall of Fame

    Feb 4, 2014, 4:13 PM EDT


    Charlie Manuel already owns the Philadelphia Phillies’ record for wins by a manager with 780, but since records are made to be broken, the franchise will immortalize the legendary skipper another way. The team announced on Tuesday that Manuel will join the ranks of the great Phillies of all time in a pre-game ceremony to…

  3. Roy Halladay will be with the Phillies in Clearwater as guest instructor

    Roy Halladay

    We mentioned the Phillies interest in Roy Halladay in a potential instructing role a couple of weeks ago. Today, the team announced that Halladay will in fact be a guest instructor down in Clearwater this spring, joining a handful of other former Phils. Halladay was known for his impressive work ethic almost as much as…

  4. The Phillies have interest in Roy Halladay

    Roy Halladay

    Not as a pitcher obviously. He retired, remember. But the Phillies do apparently have interest in Roy Halladay as an instructor of some sort. Somewhat hidden in a note by Jim Salisbury about whether or not Charlie Manuel will return to the Philadelphia Phillies in a coaching role this coming season is a quick bit…

  5. A few more fond remembrances of Roy Halladay

    Dec 10, 2013, 11:14 AM EDT

    Roy Halladay

    A number of former and current Philadelphia Phillies players shared their thoughts on the great Roy Halladay yesterday. We’ll share some of those below, but first a few links from around the web today. I also wanted to share my most memorable post on Halladay. It was a simple post about how he talks to…

  6. Roy Halladay places ad in Daily News thanking Philadelphia fans

    Dec 9, 2013, 3:06 PM EDT


    Roy Halladay retired from the game of baseball this afternoon in an emotional press conference after signing a one-day contract with the Toronto Blue Jays. But Halladay wanted to make it very clear that he was extremely thankful for his time in Philadelphia and that he will always fondly remember the playoff runs he and…

  7. Watch Roy Halladay’s retirement press conference live

    Dec 9, 2013, 11:53 AM EDT


    In a sense, it’s nice to see Roy Halladay know that his body has nothing left to give the game of baseball. But damn it if it’s not sad to see one of the most likable Phillies hang it up having never achieved his dream of hoisting the World Series Trophy. The chances of that…

  8. Roy Halladay is retiring from baseball

    Dec 9, 2013, 11:11 AM EDT

    Roy Halladay

    A dreary Monday morning just got a bit tougher. Roy Halladay is set to retire from the game of baseball. He’ll sign a one-day contract with the Toronto Blue Jays and make the announcement later this afternoon, according to multiple reports. The decline of Halladay was one of the tougher things to watch on a…

  9. Ruben on Halladay: ‘I’d like to think it’s not the last we’ll see of Doc.’

    When Roy Halladay was pulled from Monday’s game after throwing just 16 pitches and allowing two bases on balls, many people thought they’d just witnessed Doc’s final outing as a member of the Philadelphia Phillies and perhaps of the former Cy Young winner’s career. But Ruben Amaro Jr. isn’t putting it so harshly. In fact,…

  10. Roy Halladay leaves game after just three batters due to ‘right arm fatigue’ [UPDATE: Season over]

    Roy Halladay’s career as a Philadelphia Phillies pitcher could possibly be over. Doc was pulled from Monday night’s game down in Miami after facing just three Marlins batters. His fastball topped out at a meager 83 mph. Halladay walked leadoff man Donovan Solano on four pitches, got Ed Lucas to foul out to second, and…

    Roy Halladay may have pitched his final game ever as a Phillies pitcher in South Philadelphia last night. He had more “Jamie Moyer stuff” than the face breaker we’d come to know over the years, but he walked off the mound in the sixth inning with the lead and went on to earn the win.…

  12. Watching Roy Halladay Discuss His Performance These Days Is Tough

    Sep 13, 2013, 11:40 AM EDT


    lost… collapsing… frustrating… really looking forward to pitching today… disappeared… make things work… tough… hard time… Those are all words Roy Halladay used last night when discussing his struggles in the Phillies 10-5 win over the Padres. And if you watch the way Roy talks in the above video, it’s strangely painful. Like his most…

  13. Ryne Sandberg On Roy Halladay: It’s Hard to Say

    Sep 4, 2013, 6:36 PM EDT


    One of the more unexpected storylines of this Phillies sad season is the fact that Roy Halladay returned from shoulder surgery in late August after many thought the procedure wound end his career in Philadelphia. But Doc made impressive recovery time and has started twice since returning. The results have been mixed. With the question…

  14. An Unexpected Roy Halladay Win in Late August Is a Good Thing

    Aug 26, 2013, 11:39 AM EDT


    Roy Halladay wasn’t supposed to be the Phillies starting pitcher on Sunday afternoon when the weekend began, but a pesky 18-inning affair on Saturday night forced the Phils to change Doc’s scheduled Sunday start from Reading to South Philadelphia. Halladay was asleep late Saturday night when the team informed him of the change in plans.…

  15. Video: Roy Halladay Mentions Commitment Issues from Phillies Players During Charlie Manuel’s Final Time

    Aug 21, 2013, 12:58 PM EDT

    Charlie and Doc

    Perhaps he chose to speak a little more freely since he wasn’t with the rest of the club or in the direct proximity of Charlie Manuel, but Roy Halladay said some of the more interesting things by anyone on his the former skipper’s final Phillies team. It took place after Roy’s rehab start last night…

  16. Roy Halladay Pitched Today… In a Game!

    Aug 15, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT


    The Doc is in. Roy Halladay made his first rehab start for the Gulf Coast League Phillies on Thursday, and initial estimates have him rejoining the big club possibly as early as this month. So, how did the two-time Cy Young Award winner do in first game action since May 5? Eh, well it’s hard…

  17. Roy Halladay Threw From the Mound on Sunday

    Jul 22, 2013, 7:00 AM EDT


    If there were any encouraging developments to take from the Phillies’ weekend series in New York – other than not losing ground on first place in the NL East despite dropping two of three to the Mets – it was a bullpen session. Specifically it was Roy Halladay’s bullpen session, the first of its kind…

  18. Charlie Manuel: Roy Halladay Is “Coming Along Real Good”

    Jul 10, 2013, 4:56 PM EDT


    The Phillies are creating a bit of buzz once again with their latest stretch of good baseball, taking two of three from a pair of first-place teams, and the first two so far in a four-game series with the Washington Nationals. We’re still skeptical about a potential playoff run as we’ve seen this team go…

  19. Rich Dubee Used the Words ‘Very, Very Good’ and ‘Fantastic’ When Talking About Roy Halladay Today

    Jun 24, 2013, 9:30 PM EDT


    Remember Roy Halladay? He played catch. That’s just one small step in his road back to potentially pitching for the Philadelphia Phillies again this season. Catch is obviously a long, long way off from taking the pitchers mound in game action, but at least Rich Dubee spoke very positively when talking about Doc’s catch session…

  20. What Roy Halladay Owes Philadelphia

    May 13, 2013, 12:29 PM EDT


    The Sunday before last, Roy Halladay gave up nine runs in 2 and 1/3 innings to the awful Miami Marlins, bringing his ERA for the season to 8.65. After the game, Halladay admitted that his shoulder had been bothering him for awhile. Following a visit a few days later to Dr. Lewis Yocum — because…

  21. Roy Halladay Apologizes to Philly Fans: ‘I don’t take playing for Philadelphia for granted.’

    May 10, 2013, 8:26 PM EDT


    Roy Halladay hasn’t pitched up to the standards he’s set for himself. It’s a tall task living up to the Best Pitcher on Earth label and he clearly hasn’t done that the past two seasons in Philadelphia. Life happens. You get older. Injuries take their toll. But Roy Halladay wants you to know he is…

  22. Anatomy Lesson: Dr. Schwartz Explains Doc Halladay’s Shoulder Issues

    May 9, 2013, 8:14 AM EDT


    You’ve likely already seen Roy Halladay discuss the procedure he will undergo in the next week or so, but if you’re like me, you probably didn’t understand all of the medical jargon involved. Comcast SportsNet’s Lisa Hillary caught up with Dr. Mark Schwartz who explained much of the anatomy of the shoulder we’re dealing with.…

  23. Roy Hallday Will Have Surgery to Fix Bone Spur, Partially-Torn Rotator Cuff

    May 8, 2013, 2:22 PM EDT


    Roy Halladay couldn’t figure out why he was unable to locate his pitches over the past few weeks. Turns out, his body was dealing with a bone spur and a partially torn rotator cuff. The bone spur also caused fraying in both his rotator cuff and labrum. Doc spoke with reporters prior to this afternoon’s…

  24. Report: Roy Halladay Still Alive, Smiling and Laughing and Generally Emoting Positively

    May 8, 2013, 1:22 PM EDT


    The big Roy Halladay update is set to come in just under an hour from San Francisco, but there are already signs pointing to the positive. For instance, Charlie Manuel was a guest on satellite radio this morning and hinted that Halladay will likely pitch again this season. Then, Halladay was spotted smiling and laughing…

  25. Department of Really Sad Sentences: Roy Halladay Edition

    May 7, 2013, 3:03 PM EDT


    Sometimes we watch the game and get annoyed or pissed off when our team is down by 10 runs and it’s only the third inning. When it’s a particularly meaningful game, we often allow the brutal loss to sink in over the next few days and try to find some sort of meaning or explanation…
