i agree u cant deal halladay but soemtimes its hard seeing clearly from the inside looking out,thats why we come to forums to get nuetral opinions.Outside of halladay your picthing is bad.billingsly kinda helps it but he still has his ups an downs.I really dont see how an why this guy would trade.you can maybe sucker him inot a manny/josh johnson for lee trade .johnson isnt that good but is pitching good so sell hi.I wouldnt do it but i am just looking for options.he did a good job of drafting.i would deal manny an cruz,maybe for lee but its gonna be hard.my point if u can deal manny u should,bad draft choice in my opinion.maybe even manny an adrian for lee an blalock.u really lose some on paper but i think u win in long run

It's tough, because Lee was probably drafted in rounds 2-4. I know I'd want a top tier SP in return for him, and you're not willing to give it up.
I agree ... Bills + Cruz for Lee might get it done. I'm not sure I like that though (for you). If you don't want to part with a hitter, you could upgrade his closers instead. Like Bills/Soria for Lee/Wilson? Bills plus a lower SP might work, but it can't be a scrub (someone like Slowey or Johnson or Burnett). Well, it least it can't be a scrub if you want the trade to look reasonable.
