Halladay is the best player in the deal, but Longoria isn't far behind and Howard and Kershaw are pretty high picks as well. I'd do it.

Yes. Yes and Yes. Halladay maybe the best SP in the game, but you're dumping Brad Lidge??? and a washed out A-Ram... take it and run. Good Luck
I guess there was no curse... Boston just sucked for 86 years...

Thanks all, I was pretty positive I was going to make the trade but just needed some reassurance on giving up Doc.

You're receiving three of the four best players in the deal... jump on this trade and run.

No Brainer comes to mind with this deal.

Absolutely..... JUMP! JUMP! JUMP! on this deal. I also do not believe Halladay is the key piece in the deal.

Borderline robbery for you. Actually... If you take this deal, put on a balaclava. I'm jealous.
