Halladay Prefers Philadelphia

25 07 2009

Jeff Blair says in a Saturday evening post, “Know this: Halladay has told people that the Phillies are his preferred choice if he were to be traded. The Blue Jays want pitchers J.A. Happ and Kyle Drabek and one of two outfield prospects: Michael Taylor or Dominic Brown. Shortstop Jason Donald would be nice, too and the Blue Jays might expand the deal if they need to do so.”

PCPTAKE: Nice to hear that the Phils are Halladay’s preferred destination. Despite being a near playoff lock and defending World Series Champions, some players (Jake Peavy) with a no trade close would reject a trade to the Phils’ because of the ballpark. As for the Jays asking price, too high. I can’t see including both Happ and Drabek together (personally, I can’t see giving up Drabek at all).
