The Asking Price For Doc Halladay

Blue Jays GM J.P. Ricciardi told Jon Heyman of 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 boatlad.  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.
