Roy Halladay Is Sick.

This won't be long...  I'm just a tad excited. Phillies ace Roy Halladay has officially gone from really, really, really good to simply sick in my book ("...  does he actually have a 'book'?").

Unless you have some peculiar hatred of the color red, you probably know by now that he threw a no-hitter today against the Reds in Game 1 of the NLDS. The second postseason no-hitter in Major League history, and the first one since Joe McCarthy was still a U.S. Senator and Jackie Robinson was the Brooklyn Dodgers' second baseman. His second no-hitter of the season, his 22nd victory of the season (wins!!!!!), his tenth complete game and his fifth shut-out. Nolan Ryan was the last pitcher to pitch no-hitters in a season, for the California Angels of 1973. It was the sixth no-hitter of the 2010 season. There were six no-hitters from September 1999 to April 2003.

And...  okay, I'm done ranting.

But I maintain my point: Roy Halladay is sick.
