Just please stop thinking small. I'm so sick of this franchise thinking small.
More likely (if he was desperate to get out of Toronto and Cincinnati was the only place the Jays were willing to send him) he'd accept the trade to the Reds and then opt out of his deal at the end of the season, which I believe he's allowed to do on a multi-year contract.
I'm with you about not thinking small, but Halladay's a bit of a futile target.
