Phillies, Angels Leading Halladay Sweepstakes

Bleacher ReportAnalyst IDecember 10, 2009

Angels-lead-chase-for-Halladay" target="_blank">According to Ken Rosenthal , the Phillies, along with the Los Angeles Angels, are the front-runners to land Roy Halladay from the Toronto Blue Jay. 

Rosenthal says a source told him that the Phils are offering a package of young players, including J.A. Happ and one of their top two outfielder prospects, Domonic Brown or Reggie Taylor .

The Phillies would “almost certainly need” to clear up some payroll to acquire Halladay, and Joe Blanton is a possibility to be dealt, Rosenthal says; however a source told him that moving Blanton wouldn’t be enough as additional moves would be required.

(Check out my previous article about why Halladay to the Phillies makes the most sense )
