One of the last of a dying breed as a true workhorse, innings eating ace. HOF pitcher, RIP 

Just a horse.   

2 Cy Youngs.    5 other top 5 finishes.   Led league in innings 4 times.  ALMOST 100 games over 500 at 203-105   Great competitor great pitcher.  He's a guy the metrics guys love, but the old school guys love more.   He threw a lot of innings, and won a lot of games, and at the end of the day, that's what starters should do.

Roy Halladay had amphetamine, morphine in system, autopsy shows

 

NEW PORT RICHEY, Fla. -- An autopsy report says retired star pitcher Roy Halladay had evidence of amphetamine, morphine and an insomnia drug in his system when he died in a small plane crash in Florida last year.

The Tampa Bay Times reported that an autopsy released Friday shows the former Toronto Blue Jays and Philadelphia Phillies All-Star died from blunt force trauma with drowning as a contributing factor when he crashed his personal plane into the Gulf of Mexico near New Port Richey on Nov. 7.

The National Transportation Safety Board hasn't identified a cause for the crash. A witness told investigators that Halladay's ICON A5 climbed to between 300 and 500 feet before it went into a 45-degree dive and slammed into the water.

The body of the two-time Cy Young Award winner was found in the wreckage.
