It appears like someone else wants to go to the Zoo With Roy. New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin is an admirer of Roy Halladay and used him as inspiration for his Giants team.

It was so bad for Roy Halladay that the Toronto Blue Jays didn't just send the former first-round pick to the minors a year after his ERA ballooned to 10.64. They sent him to the lowest minor-league team in their system, Class A Dunedin, Fla. His confidence was so shattered at the time that the Blue Jays asked a counselor from their employee assistance program to help break the news to him.

"Here's a guy who had to go to 'A' ball to resurrect his career, and he did it with humility and he did it with the end in mind," Coughlin said of Halladay, who now pitches for the Phillies.

Here's hoping it doesn't work.
