Initial Reports Have Halladay To Phillies, Lee to Mariners

Ken Rosenthal's hunch may have been right all along.  He said a three team blockbuster could take place bringing Roy Halladay to the Phillies, and sending Cliff Lee to a mystery 3rd team.  For now, it seems it is all coming clear.

Early reports on SI.com are saying the Phillies are sending Lee to the Mariners for 3 prospects.  Those of which I do not know.  The Phillies are then sending those prospects to the Blue Jays for Halladay and cash.  The cash will help with the over $15 million Halladay is due next season.

Nothing is official yet, and the Phillies are said to be working with Greg Landry, Halladay's agent, to get a contract extension done.  That was one thing Halladay needed to waive his no trade clause.
