Halladay: Future bright, but not now

Posted by admin on 16th July 2009

With every day that passes, Roy Halladay begins to sound more and more like an ex-Blue Jay.

Halladay talked frankly again Tuesday, before going out to start the All Star Game, about the future. And he gave off the impression he was less convinced than ever that the Blue Jays are close enough to winning in the near future to convince him to stay.

Asked how he felt about the direction of the franchise, considering how much he has said he liked it in Toronto, Halladay gave this reply:

“Yeah, I do [like it]. I think we have a lot of great pieces. But the tough part is to be in a tough division. I think sometimes you do think you have enough guys to make a run. But if we lose one or two, it’s just been frustrating in the past couple of years that we haven’t been able to go out and get those couple of extra guys. …

“So everything has to go right. You need guys to play to their potential. And you need two or three guys, that you don’t expect, to step up.”
