 The Blue Jays were trying to get offers from teams before the trade deadline this year for Ace Roy Halladay.

Many big market teams went after him but the Blue Jays decided not to give him up.

Reports have come up once again saying teams are on the chase for Halladay.

GM Alex Anthopoulos who replaced Ricciardi will get what he wants this offseason or maybe wait until next July.

Halladay went 17-10 with a 2.79 ERA and 208 strikeouts this season. His numbers did no reflect how the Blue Jays did, falling 28 games behind first.

Originally it looked as though the Jays were not willing to deal him in their own division earlier in the season but they may be able to compensate for it.

The teams that may want to go after him are The Red Sox, Yankees and possibly the Angels.

However, Nothing is certain yet
