Jon Heyman of SI.com says that the Phillies, Mariners and Blue Jays have agreed to a deal that will send Halladay to Philadelphia, Cliff Lee to Seattle and prospects from both teams to Toronto. The Philadelphia Inquirer is reporting that Blue Jays ace Roy Halladay is in Philadelphia and possibly negotiating a long term deal in anticipation of a blockbuster deal that will make Halladay a Phillie. Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Roy Halladay and his agent have […]
According to Tom Verducci of SI.com, the Phillies are emerging as the favorite to land Toronto ace Roy Halladay. “They’ve been very aggressive,” one baseball source said about the Phillies’ pursuit of Halladay. “They’re putting together a package, even if they need another team. They’re trying to find the players [on other teams] the Blue Jays want to get it done.” The Phillies, who already have the National League’s best offense, would arguably have the […]
Still no serious negotiations are ongoing between the Blue Jays and a suitor for their ace, Roy Halladay. However, there is some interesting speculation and rumor making it’s way onto the blogosphere this morning. According to Troy Renck of the Denver Post, “The Angels, Red Sox and Yankees, in that order for now, are pursuing Toronto ace Roy Halladay.” Joel Sherman of the New York Post, really sent a chill down my spine when he reported that the […]
Yesterday the winter meetings officially began in Indianapolis and as usual some trades were apparently made and then it turned out that there was no trade. In some cases the two teams involved in the trade had not even spoken to each other. This is the joys of covering the winter meetings. In the case of the Mets a Philadelphia paper reported that the Mets traded Luis Castillo as part of 3 team trade that had […]
Can you guess what the magic word is for this chilly December 1st day? To begin, Toronto starting pitcher Roy Halladay has given the Blue Jays a deadline for trading him or he will invoke his no trade clause according to Buster Olney of ESPN. Roy Halladay, the All-Star pitcher who has been the subject of much trade talk since before the July deadline, will not approve any proposed deal after he reports to spring training, according to […]
Some fresh news to report that involves a few names that may be of interest to Mets fans. On Friday, the excursive window that teams have to negotiate with their own free agents comes to an end. You can expect things to really start reaching a frenzied peak after that. Today, Bart Hubbuch of the NY Post had an exclusive interview with free agent starting pitcher Jason Marquis who considers himself a perfect fit with the […]
Let me begin by saying that you’ll get no argument from me as to who is the superior starting pitcher between Roy Halladay and John Lackey. Obviously, it’s Halladay and it’s not even close. If Doc was pitching for a high powered offense like the Yankees, he may have been a 25 game winner this season, and the one before that, and the one before that too. He is a tremendous talent who is worthy […]
John Lackey? Roy Halladay? Both are All-Star caliber pitchers. Both could elevate the Mets to the level where we expect them to be. Signing Lackey and trading for Halladay would look lovely, but we know that’s not happening. After all, the Wilpons are our owners. Acquiring one of the two appears to be the more likely scenario. As Joe D stated in a blog earlier today, John Lackey might be the wiser choice because he […]
You’ve heard it again and again and again… Great pitching wins championships. While the Mets spend the next few weeks pondering over what went wrong, I urge them not to waste too much time looking backward. Jeff Wilpon, Fred Wilpon and Omar Minaya have each already stated that they are committed to putting a championship team on the field in 2010. Additionally, they held firm to the theory that they built Citi Field to house a […]
