    Roy 'Doc' Halladay Dies in plane crash.

    Feel like one of the greatest pitchers I've ever watched deserved its own thread.

    So many reports of him being an amazing human.

    Will be missed, RIP.

    So sad. A two time Cy Young winner gone too soon. He was only 40 yrs old.

    It's very sad.

    F--K!!!

    My favorite pitcher of this generation along with the unit and, as anyone who has ever played Fantasy w me knows, a stalwart Sauron draft pick even at the end.

    There is a funny meme of Halladay goofing behind an unknowing fan wearing his jersey at the zoo as the guy's back is turned away and unknowing from Doc.

    A truly f--king sad day.

    I remember every time the Yankees played the Jay's seeing his name and thinking that's a loss.

    Did you just take a jab at the Sox in a thread about the death of one of the greatest pitchers in our generation?

    I think you did, considering Pedro has absolutely nothing to do with Halladay's passing.

    You sir, are a low life Yankee fan.

    It became almost a running joke in Fantasy, which, by the way, it has not escaped my notice that the tables seem to have turned in your favor concerning one Mr. Dallas Keuchel.

    By the way, is your family alright? I was in PR 3 days after Maria and that s--t was just downright insane.


    Any Questions?

    Horrible day , reminds me of the day Thurman Munson passed away. Doesn’t seem real. Met him years ago at a BAT event for MLB. Really nice guy, I of course asked wouldn’t you want to play for the Yankees. He didn’t answer but his wife ( or GF) said NY was too congested ...

    Actually, even I can see that Doc was not as lauded as Pedro... but Pedro didn't have to face the other of the top 2 in the AL East.. because he pitched for them.. but Doc had to pitch against both and did it well. Pedro struggled with the yanks.. Doc, struggled with nobody.

    Still.. Sad day in Baseball...
    My 3 Favorite teams...
    1. The NY Yankees
    2. The Colorado Rockies
    3. Whoever is playing the Red Sox tonight!

    Agree with all of this.

    Was my take on the comment as well.

    that might very well be true

    but certainly not for taking a shot at a RS while complementing the departed

    heck that's worth bonus points

    40 years old is too young. Don't know the children's ages, but he was only 40, so they and his wife were certainly still dependent on him.

    We all want to live our lives to the fullest, but when one of us takes risks which might be considered reckless, bad things can occasionally happen to good people. Don't know the reason for the crash, but it was a single engine plane. If something goes wrong with the single engine, you are going down. Don't know whether a twin engine plane might have been better. There were supposedly 3 Maydays. Nothing was said about the actual crash, whether the plane flipped over, etc. With a water landing, there is more resistance than with a tarmac landing. Plane of that size can be equipped with a parachute(s), in case of engine failure and those parachutes would guide the plane's landing better. Extra features cost money, but mitigate risks.

    Also flying over water is supposedly difficult from a depth perspective and at some times of day, some individuals have problems determining where the altitude of the horizon, where the sky ends and the water begins. Cory Lidle also died flying over the water near the Statue of Liberty.

    Regardless of the risks he took, by all accounts he was a good man, who loved his family and was a good friend and a respected teammate. It's very sad. He will be missed. RIP.
