“Roy is like a machine. He’s the type of pitcher that doesn’t care what happens around him. He still is going to get the batters out any way he can. That’s what makes him a lot better than most.”
—Former teammate Benjie Molina

“Everything he throws feels like a bowling ball when you hit it.”
—Big league catcher Brandon Fahey

“He never loses focus. That’s the thing about him. He never loses his intensity or concentration.”
—Former Blue Jays manager John Gibbons

“It’s hard to say how good he is because every time he pitches, he wins. He can take an aggressive hitter out of the game because he works so fast. What can I say? He’s an ace.”
—All-Star Miguel Tejada

“He gives you a chance to win every time you go out there. It doesn’t matter if you are on a hot streak or a cold one, with him pitching, you know you have a good chance.”
—Former teammate Troy Glaus

“He is—by far and nobody comes close—the toughest, toughest individual mentally and the most driven I’ve ever been associated with.”
—Former Blue Jays manager Carlos Tosca

“Clearly, he is one of the best pitchers in baseball.”
—Phillies GM Ruben Amaro Jr.

“There's a reason he’s done so well in his career, and it comes from his incredible work ethic and his desire to win.”
—Teammate Cole Hamels

“To get a no-hitter in this fashion, in your first postseason game, you've got to put it right up there.”
—Teammate Ryan Howard

“He's an ace among aces.”
—All-Star Joey Votto
