Epstein: Red Sox Pursued Halladay Hard

Red Sox GM Theo Epstein told WEEI that he made the Blue Jays multiple offers for Roy Halladay, but never blew them away. (Here's a transcript from DJ Bean of WEEI.com.) 

"I never got the sense that we were close, but we were pretty aggressive," Epstein said of his negotiations with Toronto GM J.P. Ricciardi. "We actually made J.P. several different offers, but our last offer- our most aggressive attempt- was I think the day before the deadline and he said that it was a good offer. It was probably the best offer that he had received, but that he was looking to get blown away and it didn't blow him away."

Epstein was in other top starters and says would have added one "in an ideal world."
