    Reds have interest in Halladay

    www.mlbtraderumors.com

    11:45am: Ed Price of AOL FanHouse says Cincinnati has interest in Halladay. Presumably, Halladay wouldn't accept a trade to the 44-50 Reds.

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

    Texas, St. Louis (at least before the Matt Holliday deal), Tampa Bay, Milwaukee and -- a team not mentioned so far -- 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.
    Now that would really crash the board. Maybe Cast and Walt are serious about being buyers

    Every team in baseball has interest in Roy Halladay. If they don't, their GM should be fired yesterday.

    Why would he approve a trade to a team that hasn't done squat in 10 years? He's not coming to Cincy.

    I am going to be the first one to say:

    BS!

    I'm not saying that to you Benihana, but to the notion that the Reds are even trying to acquire Roy Halladay. I'm sure they have interest, but they have nothing more than that. I'm guessing a deal for him would take Alonso, Bailey, Heissey and probably more.

    I would imagine the Reds could put one heck of a deal on the table for Toronto. It is my understanding that most of the offers have been fairly underwhelming so far leading me to think Toronto will hold onto him.
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.

    Wow...

    It's funny. If we hear no reports of Walt getting involved, he is sitting on his hands doing nothing. If we hear that he is getting involved with one of the biggest names, it is a BS report.

    This would be huge. Probably a longshot for the reasons mentioned above, but wow.

    It's just simply not true and everyone here knows it. There is simply no way Halladay is coming to Cincy. It sounds like some nonsense leaked by the Reds FO to get some interest up.

    If the proof Walt is really working the phones and putting together impact deals is one internet rumor I'd say chances are better that Walt's dozing in his chair.

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

    doesn't matter what Toronto wants ... it's driven by where Halladay will go. Cincy isn't on the list.

    They want Hughes. They are at about the same value if used correctly.
