wow RIP Roy Halladay if it's confirmed true. One of the best pitchers in the MLB for a good 7-8 year stretch.

Condolensces to Roy Halladay's family. Roy is one of the most humble Allstar/Ace player the bluejays ever had.
Life is very unpredictable.

The Blue Jays Organization, MLB and all the fans lost an amazing pitcher and one of the most humblest. Loved turning on the TV every 5 days to watch him take the mound during those down years for the jays. He's one of those pitchers I wish would never age and pitch forever.

Terrible and tragic news. A very underarrated pitcher, never got his due. He was so good other pitchers imitated his mechanics, see my post above.

R.I.P. Roy Halladay. The Blue Jays were not contenders at that time, but Roy Halladay was must see TV. I remember in the 2000's, I was able to go to Skydome, because there was a promo for cheap tickets in the front row seats and I watched Roy Halladay pitch defeating Mark Buerhle 2-1 on a pitcher's duel. Thanks for the memories!!!

one of the most frustrating parts about watching roy pitch live (and i mean this in the best way possible) was that he would mow down the other team and the game would barely last 2 hours :(

RIP doc :(

Geez reading more on this new single-motor plane, the Icon A5, why did Roy take the risk of flying this (I know its his dream) when in May the ICON A5 had another crash that killed 2, the company’s lead aeronautical engineer, Jon Karkow, 55, and his colleague Cagri Sever, 41. I know he just recently got his pilots license, maybe he should have had a more experience co-pilot at his side...Feel sorry for his wife and kids, his wife because as she tried to fight him against flying, as the video shows.

So sad, cannot believe this. Roy was the beast on the mound and a giant humble being outside of baseball, the world lost a gem.

I'm so sad! Halladay is the reason why I love the Blue Jays. I never missed any of his games.

RIP Halladay.

A.A. leaving L.A.?

he was the Braves 2nd choice behind Dayton Moore. Sounds like he will have the final decision on baseball related matters and Inherits one of the best farm systems in baseball. will be interesting, good to see a Canadian kid make it big
