as for the Jays and trading Halladay. they could use a solid big time bat coming back in return. a team that could use a big time pitcher like Halladay could be Texas. would Texas trade Chris Davis and something else? that could give the Jays some premium power bats for the future in Davis and Snider


Thank god you are not the GM of the Blue Jays. A trade for Halladay would include names like Smoak, Holland, Feliz ..... Davis might be a throw in.


I doubt Halladay at $30 mil for next two years is worth that if a much younger and better Peavy, who is controlled for four years at a similar rate wouldn't bring a monster package.

You can't seriously think that Jake Peavy is a BETTER pitcher than Roy Halladay. You can't even compare their stats given the quality of the opposition. Check out todays article in the NY Times if you have the chance.

I would be very surprised if none of the three stuggle. Hell, in 6 weeks this rotation could include Gonzalez, Gallagher and/or Mazzaro.


I would hardly consider Eveland or Braden safe from losing their spots in the rotation. They might have experience but they also have somewhat mediocre skills. Good thing for Oakland is that they have alot of arms to throw at this issue.

Umm...I'd much rather have the younger Peavy than Halladay if I were a GM.

They might not be safe from losing their rotation spots but they are both out of options so I think they are safer then the others.
