The difference in their salaries will most likely prevent other additions for next season, be it a Lackey, Holliday, or otherwise.
This is the exact type of Reds move that is half-assing it for the rest of the year. "Look what we did to try and contend!" after they are already out of it. Like I said, if Halladay is in the deal, or there are other high-priced acquisitions, then it's something else. If this is it, I'm not interested.
