We talked about Jake Peavy, so we might as well bring up Roy Halladay too. Which would you rather have?
In the Globe and Mail today, Jeff Blair says Halladay's future is the 2009 storyline for the Blue Jays. Halladay is signed through 2010, and GM J.P. Ricciardi has been all over the map in his comments about trading his ace. At the least, the situation seems similar to Peavy in that the GM is not thinking about making a trade right now.
As for the possibility of an extension, Halladay said he'd prefer to wait until the offseason but added, "circumstances can change." Halladay commented to the Toronto Star about the trade talk:
"For me, I just feel like it's a different situation. I'm still under contract for two years and unless you force something, create a big stir, it's not even an option for me. I feel like I'm still happy here. I feel like I have a chance to win here and that would be my ultimate goal, to win a World Series here, more than anywhere else."
