Trade's pretty much blah for me. It would be nice to have Halladay, but I would much rather have Longoria over Kinsler. And him throwing in Gardner means absolutely nothing to me, You already have a crowded OF.

Don't bankrupt your team to get a pitcher. Your starting pitching staff is already strong. You should be looking more to upgrade 2B and maybe find a RP to replace Santos, Salas, and Francisco. And the other teams 2B being Kinsler isn't someone I would be targeting unless I could buy really low.

Your starters are pretty strong so even though you have a "thing" for Halladay I wouldn't make this deal. I'd much rather have Longo and CC
