Toronto GM J.P. Ricciardi has set a “soft” deadline of July 28 to trade ace Roy Halladay, and also is saying that a deal is becoming more and more unlikely.
"…at this point it's probably unlikely we'll trade Doc," after both he and Halladay recently pegged the chances for a deal at "50-50."
As for the Yankees, the NY Post is reporting “that both New York teams are not serious pursuers of the ace right-hander.”
It seems the frontrunners now are the Phillies, Cardinals and Brewers.
Oh well. I always thought Halladay would cement a spot in the World Series for the Yankees, but I guess they’ll have to win without him.
