MLB 2K11: Halladay A Perfect Choice

| November 15, 2010 | Reply

Roy Halladay is definitely one of the greatest pitchers to ever play the game of Baseball, there is no question there.  This past season he racked up more than 20 wins, and not only did he throw a perfect game early in the season, but he threw only the second no-hitter in postseason history.  Because of these achievements Roy Halladay has landed himself a modeling gig on the cover of the upcoming Major League Baseball 2K11.  We know that there has always been a lingering curse so to speak in regards to the pro athletes that wind up on the cover of the Madden series games having horrible following seasons and our first look at the magic of the curse will come tomorrow if Halladay isn’t named the NL Cy Young winner.  I am sure he will be though.  Check out the game pics below and let us know if this choice makes sense to you?

Having tossed only the twentieth perfect game in baseball — ever — this past season and tacking on twenty more regular season wins, not to mention recording only the second no-hitter in post-season history (in his first post-season game), Phillies ace Roy Halladay has earned himself the cover spot on this spring’s Major League Baseball 2K11 (no curse attached). 2K Sports bestowed the honor today, in advance of tomorrow’s National League Cy Young Award announcement, which the publisher predicts will go to “Doc” as well.

“I’m honored to be on the cover of Major League Baseball 2K11,” said the always-humble Halladay in 2K’s announcement. “I’m not one for predictions, but should 2K Sports be right about tomorrow, well, that would be a great way to end the year.” Certainly, it would be a better ending than the current one: watching teammate and former MLB 08 cover athlete, Ryan Howard, take strike three looking to seal shut a chance for the team’s third-straight World Series appearance.

Or is that not how it played out in your 2K10 season?
