Halladay, Carpenter take their rivalry to the high seas

Roy Halladay and Chris Carpenter have a date to square off in Game 5 of the NLDS -- and then another shortly after the season ends.

The two old friends -- whose relationship dates back to when they both came up with the Blue Jays in the mid-90's -- made offseason fishing plans a few days ago, and they don't expect Friday's outcome to change those. It could affect the topics of conversation, though.

As for who is the better fisherman, “I don’t know,” Halladay said. “I think I”ve been practicing more lately than he has.”
