Former Phillies staring right-hander Roy Halladay, as the kids would say, has no chill.
Halladay took to Twitter on Monday, posting a picture of him throwing batting practice to a woman:
I recorded my first strike out since retirement! Time for a comeback? She has a better swing then Arod! No steroids pic.twitter.com/98ytAyTUy0— Roy Halladay (@RoyHalladay) March 23, 2015
That's quite a burn. However, it didn't take long for many to fire right back:
Halladay took the responses in stride, posting a subsequent tweet:
Than... Sorry grammar was never my strength! Haha.. So a handful of Arod fans said he hit 308 off me. Curious what my record is vs his team— Roy Halladay (@RoyHalladay) March 23, 2015
Chris Cwik of Yahoo Sports laid out the actual numbers for every matchup between A-Rod and Halladay. The results:
Rodriguez hit .299/.349/.429 in 77 at-bats against Halladay from 1998 to 2013. Halladay did limit Rodriguez to just one home run, though.
Sure, Rodriguez has a World Series ring, something Halladay does not.
However, Halladay didn't have to admit to using nor was he ever accused of taking performing-enhancing drugs during his playing days. Also, Rodriguez doesn't seem like the kind of guy cool enough to go to the zoo with a guy who named a blog after him:
