Roy Halladay Is Retiring

As a Blue Jay.

Sniff.

Definitely don’t call it a comeback. It turns out Roy Halladay’s brief return last September was really a farewell tour.

Two-time Cy Young Award winner and free-agent pitcher Roy Halladay will announce his retirement Monday in a news conference with the Toronto Blue Jays, having signed a one-day deal with his former team, sources confirmed to ESPN The Magazine’s Buster Olney.

Also, this, from Jayson Stark.

 

Anyways, the Jays?! But but but...yeah, this actually makes perfect sense. The Phillies were never able to deliver the World Series Halladay wanted so badly, so why not go home to the place that raised you.
