Halladay Cheer

by Rob McQuown

Little-known Roy Halladay facts (with apologies to a list of Chuck Norris facts):

- You don't decide your destiny, Roy Halladay chooses it for you.

- Roy Halladay makes mission impossible....possible.

- Nothing beats a failure but Roy Halladay.

- Roy Halladay can divide by zero.

- Roy Halladay was a top pitcher with two starts tied behind his back.

That's right, we were missing two starts for Roy Halladay, and some starts by some lesser hurlers as well.  We'd been investigating the reasons for Halladay being anywhere besides the top of the pitching lists, and finally figured it out.  No changes have been made to the formulae, but the various leader boards for pitchers now give him his full due. We apologize for the error and thank you for your patience.
