NOT AS A PHIL OR A JAY, HALLADAY GOING IN AS JUST ROY!

By Sam Bush

Roy Halladay’s family has made a decision that has Toronto torqued off.

According to Sportsnet Canada, the Halladay family has decided not to have the ace represent either the Blue Jays or the Phillies in Cooperstown.

On the other hand, he achieved his most historic feats, and made his only playoff impact, in Philly.

While it would be fair for either side to find this development puzzling, it’d be hard to justify actually being mad at it. Harboring resentment towards the family of a man who died far too soon for how a bronze plaque will be decorated isn’t exactly a good look.

There may be people who are disappointed they didn’t get their preferred outcome, but ultimately Halladay is in the Hall of Fame, and a first-ballot entrant at that. For those who enjoyed watching him pitch, that acknowledgement ought to be more important than anything else.
