Roy Halladay Rumors: Monday

10:29pm: Marc Topkin of the St. Petersburg Times reports that the Rays have checked in on Halladay, as they do on most players, but didn't even talk to the Jays today.

9:37pm: Jayson Stark of ESPN.com reports that the Jays and Dodgers talked about a possible Halladay deal today and don't appear to match up well.

5:50pm: SI's Jon Heyman says the Angels are interested in Doc only if he'll sign a long-term deal with them.

5:17pm: The Rays "flatly denied" interest in discussing Davis and Upton for Halladay, reports ESPN's Peter Gammons.

4:20pm: Ken Rosenthal and Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports say the Rays inquired on Halladay, and "might be willing to offer Wade Davis and B.J. Upton."  So far the most surprising rumor of the day.

10:05am: A couple of tweets from ESPN's Buster Olney prompt our first Roy Halladay post of the morning.  Olney says the Blue Jays are in discussion mode on Doc, and no trade is close currently.  He also says not to rule out the Angels even though they hold Spring Training in Arizona rather than Halladay's reported preference, Florida.

MLB.com's Jordan Bastian tells us that Blue Jays GM Alex Anthopoulos is "limiting the number of people in his suite for any talks," which should cut down on leaks.  Something tells me the rumors will keep coming.
