    Halliday's would immediately become a mediocre pitcher if he were ever traded to the Reds.

    I find it amusing that many folks who complain Jocketty does not get anything done will be the first in line to complain if he gives up too much.

    It takes two teams to consummate a trade. Players of actual value require value in return. The people that some would prefer to trade on this board from the Reds' roster are not likely the same players that actual general managers would be targeting. The expectations on this board tend to be out of whack.

    Unless the Reds trade Votto or Bruce, I could care less who else they give up. Just bring is some proven talent, please.

    I have interest in Jessica Alba. Presumably she wouldn't be interested in 30 seconds of dissapointment with an out of shape, midlle aged, non-rich, non-famous guy.

    Re: Reds have interest in Halladay

    If the Reds were to include Harang or Arroyo, the deal would be essentially salary neutral. Include, say, Bailey, Maloney, and Frazier and you have a pretty nice package that would potentially make sense for both clubs. That said, I don't think there's a chance that Halladay accepts a deal to come here.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Toronto has little reason to give in on that. Halladay is not in the last year of his contract. He is not a free agent until after the 2010 season. I would think most teams would want to kick the tires and judge the market before offering an extension.

    Re: Reds have interest in Halladay

    The most interesting thing to come out of this rumor is that the Rangers have put together an attractive package for Halladay.

    If the Blue Jays don't bite, the Reds need to step in and offer Harang for that same package.

    I am sitting around and waiting. Hopefully he'll be judged by the fruits of his labor, not on what he tried to do (or didn't try to do).

    Re: Reds have interest in Halladay

    Allow me to add I think this is more evidence of my claims that Jocketty might have been looking at 2010 all along. This makes sense considering Halladay is signed for next season. It also jives with the remarks Jocketty has made repeatedly in recent weeks that the Reds want to make a trade that helps this year and beyond.

    Bailey, Alonso, Stubbs/Heisey, Roenicke. Do it, convince him to accept, and get to work on SS, 3B and LF.
