It took five months longer than we expected, but Roy Halladay is a Philadelphia Phillie.

According to Jon Heyman, the Phillies have agreed to a three-team trade with the Toronto Blue Jays and Seattle Mariners that will send Halladay to Philadelphia, Cliff Lee to Seattle, and a package of prospects from the Phillies and M's to the Blue Jays.

Halladay, 32, will sign a contract extension with Philadelphia to complete the blockbuster.

Heyman hasn't been able to confirm whether Lee is the player that Seattle gets in the trade, but he was able to confirm that Seattle is the third team.

Who Toronto gets from Philadelphia and Seattle is still an unknown.

Halladay went 17-10 with a 2.79 earned run average last year with the Blue Jays while Lee had a 3.39 ERA in 12 starts for the Phillies.

Ruben Amaro Jr. now has acquired two former Cy Young winners in his tenure as the general manager of the Phillies.

More to come.
