I do not see the rangers letting go of Smoak, let alone both Davis and Smoak... They have one of the strongest farm clubs as far as amount of talent but getting rid of both of these guys is something I do not see happening. One is a possibility though (most likely Davis). I see Smoak as being one of their untouchables but it is Halladay and they obviously need pitching to compete..

There is a chance that he could be - Ricciardi might want to move him this year because I think he gets 10/5 rights at the end of this season.
It would take something out-of-this world to snag him (which Texas do have the depth to provide), but I think it can be done.

Blue Jays GM J.P. Ricciardi told Jon Heyman of SI.com on Saturday that his club isn't actively shopping Roy Halladay and would need a "boatload" in return if a deal was made.
"I don't think we're in the market to do that at his point," said Ricciardi. "We like our team next year with Halladay. ... If we ever did get to that point, we'd want a boatload. And I don't know whether anyone would offer a boatload. But obviously, we're not at that point."
The Jays are off to a franchise record 17-9 start and aren't likely to be sellers if they can keep up the pace. But you can be sure Ricciardi will be fielding phone calls either way.
Blue Jays GM J.P. Ricciardi doesn't see his club trading Roy Halladay this season. "I still don't see us doing it," said Ricciardi. "I know ownership doesn't want to do it. And I don't think, in my gut, that Doc really wants to be anywhere else."
