Bill Shaikin of the LA Times reported yesterday that no one's calling the Blue Jays about Roy Halladay.
"We haven't gotten one call," Jays GM J.P. Ricciardi said.
It's not for a lack of interest- Halladay became the first ten-game winner in the majors yesterday and he leads the AL in innings pitched and strikeout to walk ratio. He's been a top-five Cy Young finisher each of the last three years and while he makes a lot of money, he's hardly overpaid at $14.25MM this year and $15.75MM next. Ricciardi's not fielding calls, because the Jays are 32-27, just two games back of the Yankees in the AL East. Ricciardi believes the Jays need Halladay for them to win.
"We're not going to be a playoff team without Roy Halladay."
Ricciardi repeated that he does not expect to trade Halladay and plans to work on an extension with him after the season.
