MINNEAPOLIS -- A.J. Burnett, like many of the Yankees' pitchers, watched the end of Roy Halladay's no-hitter on the giant scoreboard in centerfield during batting practice before Wednesday night's Yankees playoff game at Target Field.
Burnett knows first-hand how good Halladay is. They were teammates together with the Toronto Blue Jays. Burnett said he wasn't surprised that Halladay's first postseason start went so well.
"It's not surprising," he said. "I think it shows you what Roy Halladay is. He never really got a lot of publicity up north. Now the world can really see what Roy Halladay has."
"When he's on he's on. He's one of those pitchers you never know if he's got his A game or his B game or his C game because his C game is just as good as anybody's A game. When he's on like that, he's obviously tough to hit anywere. He was on today."
