To answer the question posed by the title of this post, um… apparently!

I know I was wholly dismissive of the whole Halladay thing the entire time– because, honestly people, cut the damn cord– but that’s pretty damn cool and/or shitty.
I don’t really have any other thoughts to offer about that here, except maybe to add that he sure didn’t make it sound like he was that serious about pitching again in 2014 during his retirement press conference at the Winter Meetings– but then again, why would he? And while I don’t know if any of us who remember Dave Stieb’s aborted 1998 comeback really would have wanted to see a broken-down Doc getting his head handed to him in the AL East next year, or that much marginal value being pissed away on warm fuzzy memories, but um… fuck it, because that would have been pretty damn awesome.
