Roy Halladay loved his (devastated) Blue Jays fans so much that he gave them a thank you card in the form of a full-page newspaper advertisement this Tuesday.
After 12 seasons with Toronto, the 2003 Cy Young Award Winner was traded to the Philadelphia Phillies in a three-team blockbuster last week. In the ad, Halladay said he felt "blessed" to have been an honorary Canadian since being drafted by the Jays in 1995.
"Toronto will forever have a special place in my heart. The memories will last a lifetime and so will my gratitude."In his career as a Blue Jay, Doc went 148-76 with a 3.43 ERA.
