It's Officially Official: Halladay to the Phils, Cliff Lee to Seattle

Bleacher ReportAnalyst IDecember 16, 2009

After a few days of hammering out physicals and filing paperwork, the Phillies announced on Wednesday that they have traded Cliff Lee to the Seattle Mariners, and will hold a press conference at 5:00 EST to announce that they acquired Roy Halladay from Toronto.

The Phillies also acquire Phillippe Aumont, J.C. Ramirez, and Tyson Gillies from the Mariners along with $6 million from the Blue Jays. Philadelphia sends Kyle Drabek, Michael Taylor and Travis d'Arnaud to the Jays, who ship Taylor to Oakland for Brett Wallace.

Halladay will wear No. 34 with the Phillies since Steve Carlton's No. 32 has been retired by the Fightins.
