I know this was posted as a fanshot early this morning but it isn't getting much attention hidden down there and I'm pretty sure this could turn into an interesting debate/discussion....
Per Buster Olney
Halladay, 32, has a no-trade clause that will allow him to dictate whether he will be dealt before he becomes eligible for free agency next fall.
"He's open to at least listening," said Ricciardi. "He's not going to be a guy who will let you do all the work [preparing for a possible trade], and then he's not willing to listen. If it makes sense, he will listen."
Alright, what package of young players/prospects are you willing to give up for Halladay? I assume if we pulled off a trade for him, we would try to extend him immediately. The Twins asked for Phil Hughes when they were dangling Johan Santana. The equivalent of that would be Holland or Feliz. Are you willing to part with one of those guys in a package for Halladay?
