Halladay great in (possible) finale, crowd better than advertised

Before I head up north for the weekend, thought I’d mention Halladay’s start last night.

Doc was great, as usual, and kept the Jays in the game. Another tough loss, 4-2, in what’s been a stretch of continuous losses. Really, I don’t think the fans cared about the Win once Halladay left after 9 innings…He got through a tough top of the frame, got a standing ovation, before the bullpen promptly blew it.

Speaking of the crowd, I’m shocked at the attendance number. 24,000 is brutal, but it didn’t seem bad at the time. I would have guessed something around 30-35k…weird.

In any case, those who showed up gave Doc a great reception all night…plenty of standing ovations and chants, along with some “keep Doc, trade JP signs”…nice.

But why weren’t there more people?

Gotta run.
