Another day, another Roy Halladay rumor. Today, Jeremy Sandler of The National Post reports that the Blue Jays "want a major league-ready arm and bat, both young and affordable enough to stay in Toronto a while, plus prospects for Halladay."
Regardless of how great Halladay is, it's a steep price to pay for just one year of his services. Yesterday we heard that the Red Sox would "almost certainly" have to give up Clay Buchholz and Casey Kelly to acquire Halladay, though those two don't meet the above-mentioned criteria. According to industry insiders, Sandler suggests that serious offers matching Toronto's wish list could be coming in the next few weeks.
