Considering what the Jays are asking for Halladay, I'd call offereing them an attractive package is a very bold move.Cincinnati have also been involved. Word is the Rangers and Reds have attractive packages
"Imagination is more important than knowledge." -- Albert Einstein
The Reds have interest in Halladay huh?
That Walt sure is a genuis, inquire about a guy who you have no intention of even making an offer for so when it seeps out it appears like we are out there trying. Guy is slick! Problem with that Walt, no on believes you have legitimate interest in a real difference maker.

My wife has said the Reds have attractive packages.
If nothing else, maybe WJ can drive up the price for the Cardinals and make them pay dearly. I'm just glad the Reds front office appears to consume O2 and produce CO2. I had my doubts for a while.
Pay attention to the open sky
This certainly is the kind of deal that has been in Jocketty's wheelhouse down the years. I can't imagine that Halladay would even consider approving a trade to the Reds, sadly.
