One Hall-of-a-Payday

ph_136880.jpgThe Toronto Blue Jays extended the length of their MVP’s contract today, securing the services of Roy Halladay through the 2010 season. The 2003 Cy-Young award winner will be thirty-three years old when his 3-year, $40 Million extension expires. After a less productive 2004 campaign, Halladay looked to be well headed towards his second award in three years when a Kevin Mench line-drive ended his and essentially his team’s 2005 seasons. With all the spending GM J.P. Ricciardi did this off-season, Roy has been given the best opportunity of his career to lead the Jays deep into the fall. The future looks bright for our city’s MLB franchise.
