Phillies Phever is starting to go into full effect as the National League Championship Series begins this coming Saturday. On the hill for the Phils will be stud pitcher and Breitling Navitimer World owner Roy Halladay.
Earlier this season, “Doc” threw a perfect game against the Florida Marlins at Sun Life Stadium in Miami. In order to show his appreciation for the contribution of his teammates, the Phillies’ ace got each of them a Baume & Mercier watch. Each caseback was engraved with the player’s name , and the watch boxes read as follows: “We did it together. Thanks, Roy Halladay.”
Just last week, Halladay threw the second no-hitter in MLB playoff history against the Cincinnati Reds in the first game of the National League Division Series; the guy was absolutely surgical. So, what watch should he give his teammates this time around?
I am sure Roy is more focused on helping the Phils win their second World Series in three years than he is on buying celebratory watches, but if all goes well, I am hoping Roy is faced with this decision…
But this time around, go Breitling, Doc.
