Roy Halladay's storied MLB career is reportedly over. According to numerous reports, Halladay—who is just 36—is going to sign a one-day contract with the Toronto Blue Jays later today and call it a career. Most recently, he pitched for the Philadelphia Phillies after spending about a decade with the Blue Jays. But shoulder problems plagued him all of last season, which is why he's going to walk away from the game of baseball.

Will he walk into the Hall of Fame, though? Although Halladay doesn't have a World Series ring, he will finish his career with 203 wins, two Cy Young awards, one postseason no-hitter, and eight All-Star appearances. And that has a lot of people stumping for him when it comes to the Hall of Fame right now. Just check out the reaction that some Twitter users had to the news about Halladay's retirement below. Do you think Halladay deserves to be in the HOF?
