Halladay doesn't have his best stuff in Chicago

U.S. Cellular field in Chicago is the only American League stadium Roy Halladay has never won at in his phenomenal career.

In Sunday's contest against the White Sox, Doc was staked to an early 2 run lead in the first inning. However, Halladay has since coughed up 3 runs on 6 hits in the first three innings allowing the White Sox to grab the lead. It's very unusual to see Doc pitch this poorly, as he is clearly struggling in this one.

What makes Halladay such a seasoned veteran, however, is that he kept his team in the game, allowing 3 runs when most average major leaguers would have melted down by now. Knowing the Jays ace, he'll bounce back and dominate the Sox the remainder of the game, even if his history in Chicago would suggest otherwise.
