Halladay enjoys the Rangers

Roy Halladay dominates the poor Rangers

Halladay left the Rangers shaking their heads in admiration after he outdueled Astacio with a complete game for the Toronto Blue Jays in a 2-1 victory before 19,366 fans.

"That's as good as I've seen him," Rangers shortstop Michael Young said after Halladay put a stop to his nine-game hitting streak.

"He was tough," Rangers catcher Rod Barajas said. "You got a guy who is throwing 92-94 [mph] and his ball is moving away from you, in on you, and he has a great curveball. He was on his A game. When a guy who won the Cy Young Award two years ago is on his A game, he's going to do this to you."

The Rangers did have a couple of chances to get to Halladay but went 1-for-8 with runners in scoring position. Those chances were also limited to just three innings. The Rangers went three-up, three-down six times.

Halladay entered the game with a career record of 2-4 against the Rangers and his 7.21 ERA against them was his highest against any American League opponent. He also had a 9.12 ERA at Ameriquest Field, his highest at any major league park.

"In the past, the biggest problem for me has been execution against this team," Halladay said. "They have some hitters in the middle of their lineup that you can't miss with. It was better today."

Liverpool have plenty of time to earn that last spot for Europe. They are only 4 points behind with eight games still to go. A lot can happen in eight games. I'd be more worried about Bolton, only one point behind Liverpool.

When and if Bill Guerin returns to the AAC as a Dallas Star, money says he will be boooed out of the building. I think fans are still looking for the truth as to what happened last season, and him being so involved in the PA doesn't help his status.

I won't boo him. He is just doing his job. But any fans that do return probably only see him as the VP of the PA that is causing the lockout.
