    Thoughts and prayers for his family. 40 is way too young. I don't think anyone ever had a bad thing to say about him. As Lance said he was one of those dominant guys that beat you and you just took it in stride because he was so humble about it.
    This is basically what I came here tonpost as well.

    Great game between two former teammates and friends.

    My wife and I had our wedding reception on October 7th 2011.

    Roy Halladay faced Chris Carpenter in Game 5 of the NLDS that night.

    It was one of the greatest baseball games Iíve ever watched. Yeah, it was our wedding reception, but most of the people at the party stayed inside watching the baseball game.

    It was one of the greatest pitching duals in postseason history.

    Chris Carpenter and the Cardinals prevailed that night, and an FCB member mailed me a ticket from the game. Lance I believe. Thank you sir.

    Halladay and Carpenter were former teammates with the Blue Jays, and close friends. Iíll always remember that game.

    For some reason, this one hit me harder than most have. Maybe its because this is probably the first major player from my time that has passed away. Sure, there were guys like Ventura and Fernandez, but this is Doc Halladay. I always enjoyed watching him pitch and remember reading about his outstanding work ethic and preparation that he put into his game. Plus, he just seemed like a regular guy who just happened to be a great pitcher. Definitely way too soon for him to go.

    Too bad, I'm reading that he was hot dogging in his plane and if he had just been flying normal this would not have happened.

    As someone who knows nothing about those planes, my first inclination about them is that most pilots would use them to do ignorant things with. So it wouldnít surprise me. He was basically flying a sardine can with wings thatís designed to do flippity floppity sh*t with.

    He probably wasn't hot-dogging it. It's an amphibious plane so I can imagine he's flying low to the water in preparation for landing it or doing touch-and-go maneuvers.

    It might help if the plane was a solid performer. A test pilot died in that same model of plane a few months ago so who knows if there is some mechanical issue that hasn't been identified and fixed by the manufacturer.

    Halladay's wife said she tried to stop him from buying the plane because she knew he'd fly dangerously but he went against her wishes. He said that flying fast and low to the water felt like flying a fighter jet.

    I feel horrible for his family. You can't fly like a reckless fool when you have a wife and kids.

    I hope they both get fired. They're Boston sportswriters though so they'll probably win an award for it.

    Why?

    For being honest? I didnít read anything other than the headline, but if thatís basically all they said then whatís the problem?

    Yes, I feel terrible for Royís family and friends, but at the end of the day if he was flying recklessly he did in fact get what he deserved.

    Play stupid games, win stupid prizes. If he chose to tempt fate, which by most accounts he did, he paid the ultimate price for it.

    We need to stop coddling people and beating around the bush and start telling the truth about these things. Roy Halladay, Oscar Taveras, Jose Fernandez, Josh Han****, Tommy Hanson, those guys were morons who killed themselves doing stupid thing. Theyíre not tragedies.

    Tragedies are guys like Roberto Clemente and Darryl Kile.

    Sometimes the truth hurts. But nobody should ever feel bad for telling it.

    I agree that people should be able to speak freely, but these two should have shown some damn respect. Oscar Taveras died in a car accident from being intoxicated. Jose Fernandez was cocaine, Josh Han**** was substance abuse, Hanson was cocaine, but lumping Halladay in the same category is incorrect. There was no mayday call to the tower. What if flew erratic due to a medical emergency? Before the facts come out, these two morons decide to form their own fatalistic opinions. What if they went up in a commercial plane and it crashed? Did they get what "they deserved"? Plenty of folks fly private planes as well and sometimes things go wrong mechanically. The moral of the story is this: show some god damn compassion for the departed, regardless of their past.
