Commissioner Corner Message Board
For Happ and 2 minor league prospects.
I was down in Toronto on business today and ate at Wayne Gretzky's resturant which is 2 minutes from the Rogers Centre. There were a bunch of execs there talking about Halladay to the Phillies for Happ and 2 prospects being almost donw, but that they really wanted to unload Vernon Wells contract.
It's down to Philly, the Mets (despite what Omar says) and yes...the Yankees. The Yankees are willing to eat Wells contract for Halladay and send Joba/Hughes and a prospect.
Close. Right now, the Phillies are front runners, but the Jays would rather trade Halladay to the Dodgers and get Clayton Kershaw and Blake DeWitt.
Unloading Vernon Wells' contract is not the turning point of the deal; although it has been discussed within the organization.
The Yankees are willing to ship out Joba Chamberlain, although they will not send Hughes. Jesus Montero would be likely to go in the deal as well.
But leaving the Dodgers out? You missed a big one.
All of these teams mentioned would have to include several low-ball minor leaguers as well.
happ, kyle dreybek, domnic brown and i can't think of the fourth prospect for halladay. Phillies will not take on wells contract he has a low possibility of being traded becuz he gets paid so much for that avg production. If Halladay does get traded marco and alex rio will also get traded
Blue Jays general manager J.P. Ricciardi still hasn’t received an appropriate trade offer for Roy Halladay(notes), and has set a July 28 deadline to complete a deal for the 2003 Cy Young Award winner.
“At this point, it’s probably unlikely that we’ll trade Doc,” Ricciardi said Tuesday.
