@Region Philbis,
Congratulations should go out to the Rays for their extra inning win but I refrain to give the city their alleged due respect because clearly they don't respect their own team.

I think this has to make him the front runner for NL MVP...

from yahoo

http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/news?slug=ap-nlds-reds-phillies

"Halladay became the fifth pitcher to throw two no-hitters in the same year. He joined Nolan Ryan (1973), Virgil Trucks (1952), Allie Reynolds (1951) and Johnny Vander Meer (1938)."

@Region Philbis,
Huge tip of the cap to Halliday. Amazing, possibly the greatest pitching performance those of us born after '56 will ever see.

@Region Philbis,
I bet not as a starter...

I rate Bumgarner over him by a wide stretch.
