    We have interest in Halladay? Holy crap no way thats true

    http://mlb.fanhouse.com/2009/07/24/p...tion-far-from/

    Cincinnati have also been involved. Word is the Rangers and Reds have attractive packages, but based on Halladay's stance, those teams' position in the standings could keep him from going there.


    I wonder what on earth we would be offering.

    based on the packages being mentioned the Reds have to be offering something like Cozart, Stubb/Heisey, and likely Stewart.

    Jays supposedly want a SS and pitching.

    Don't get your hopes up. There is no chance in the world that this would ever happen.

    Im calling 100% BS, we know we dont have the package to be in this race, so FO is throwing out that we are trying, just so when he goes to whatever other team we can say we made an attempt.

    This article is misleading. I think it meant to say we have interest in Halladay's rookie baseball card. We offered a package of a Barry Larkin game worn jersey card, along with Eric Davis Donruss Rated Rookie.

    Couldn't agree more, it's obvious this FO is more concerned with it's perception than actually doing something. After awhile all talk and no action becomes the same as the Lindner group that never did anything in my opinion. Just because they knew getting a right hand power bat was a priority, it doesn't make me feel any better when they don't do it, and make an excuse.

    Well, there is one thing he can experience in Cincinnati that he can't in Toronto - being in less than 4th place!!!

    I think that in a year or two, one of these guys - Frazier, Dorn, Valaika, Cumberland, Stubbs - will be ready to replace Dunn. They won't hit as many home runs as Dunn, but they should have similar OPS. - 757690, July 22, 2008

    I meant of what we would realistically offer and them accept within reason for either side, not a knock against our prospects.
