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.
