Posnanski: There was no doubt

SI’s great Joe Posnanski observed that Halladay’s perfecto seemed liked a given from the fifth inning on.


What struck me about his perfect game was that from about the fifth inning on, there seemed almost no doubt that he would do it. Halladay was so sharp, so on, so confident, so much in control, that he turned the improbable into the expected, he made a perfect game feel oddly routine — it would have been a SURPRISE if one of the Marlins had reached base in the late innings.
