Roy Halladay is a control freak. He throws strikes and he throws a lot of them. He doesn’t like incomplete games and he doesn’t like walks.
On Sunday, the wheels came off and Halladay did the unthinkable. Against the San Diego Padres he walked the bases loaded. Incredible, Roy Halladay lost control like no other time in his career. In Doc’s 14 years in the bigs he has never walked back-to-back-to-back batters. That’s 10,000 plus batters he has faced and never walked three straight. Heck, Halladay came into the Padres game only walking four players in this early season. Like I said, control freak.
