According to a report on MLB.com, Blue Jays ace, Roy Halladay has said that he will not resign with the Blue Jays come the end of next season. The Blue Jays, while discussing a possible three-way deal with the Cubs, reportedly said that they would like to trade Halladay this offseason.
“We would like to sign him, he is an original Blue Jay and we have
never had a pitcher as good as him,” Blue Jays president and CEO Paul Beeston told the New York Post. “But he is
not inclined to sign with us.”
Earlier, I stated that I would not like the Yankees to pursue Roy Halladay. If the Yankees decide to trade for him, they will be giving up very valuable porspects. 63% of you said in a poll that you would not trade away valuable prospects for Roy Halladay (now taking new results below). The fact that he will be a free agent next season makes this a lot easier. To me, I don’t care whether the Yankees get him or not, I just don’t want it to be at the expense of their future stars.
