Joel Sherman of the New York Post says Philadelphia is the leader to land Toronto ace Roy Halladay, who seems destined to get dealt before the trade deadline.
Wow, how tough would Philly be with Cole Hamels and Halladay heading the pitching staff, especially in a five or seven-game playoff series?
According to various reports, the Dodgers are clearly viewed as a logical landing place for Halladay, in so much as they have the necessary pieces to make a deal happen and room on the payroll to add another big contract.
The problem is many of the Dodgers’ premium prospects are already on the big league roster, and you’d have to believe Toronto would demand Clayton Kershaw in any package for Halladay.
Obviously Halladay would be a great fit for the Dodgers, not just for this year but for the next three or four seasons.
But are you willing to part with a potential ace like Kershaw to make it happen?
