Poll Results: Yanks should part with Melky for Halladay


The Yankees are, of course, in the discussion for landing Roy Halladay in what would be the blockbuster trade of the offseason. You fans have voted Melky Cabrera the guy to give up for Halladay. Obviously, the Blue Jays will be expecting more than Cabrera, but he isn’t a bad start.

For me, the only prospect I consider “untouchable” is Jesus Montero. The 19-year-old catcher has the best bat in the entire farm system and one of the best in the minors. In 92 games between Tampa and Trenton in 2009, Montero combined for 17 HRs, 70 RBI and a .337 BA before breaking his left middle finger to end his season.

Robinson Cano was picked the least to be given up, but he isn’t a plausible option in this deal because the Blue Jays already have Aaron Hill at second base.
