Well, to be honest with you, I’ve always liked Roy Halladay, even if he is a Phillie! I saw this video for the first time today and wondered if all Major League pitchers feel the same way about their catchers as Roy feels about his. I can see Lincecum and Cain showing Buster a little love, but all bets are off when it comes to Wilson. Can you just see Brian Wilson in the kitchen, making pancakes while discussing the morning with a balloon replica of Buster Posey?
I saw an interview with Buster Posey after the season was over, and as I recall, Buster said at one point he started to go out on the mound to talk with Wilson, took one look at those dark green eyes glaring off into space, promptly turned around and went back behind the plate. Later he explained, he just thought it was something he should do, not that Wilson wanted it or needed it. Posey didn’t say he was intimidated, but that was the implication.
One can only hope Roy Halladay spends a lot of time in the kitchen talking to blow-up dummies for the next six months. Is it post season yet?
