A Rob Roy cocktail is named about a guy with a middle name Roy who didn’t go by Roy or ride Trigger, play music, or box – that was Roy Rogers, Roy Orbison, and Roy Jones, Jr.
After the July trade with the Astros, the Phillies 1-2 pitchers are both Roy. Not many Roys have made it to the Show (80s), let alone having two on the same time. Besides, with my Reds facing the Phillies in the divisional playoffs, it is a great time to examine the All-Time Roys.
The All-Time Roys are better than expected, especially considering that number of Roys in MLB history. Offense, the first two starters, and closer are strengths, but pitching depth is an issue. The Roys won’t be contenders, but they should have no problem dismantling the All-Time Randys.

Ladies and gentlemen, now taking the field, the All-Time Roys.

Last but not least, here’s a baseball salute to The Natural, Roy Hobbs that chokes me up every time.
