Rememeber how J.C. Ricciardi made a point of telling everyone that the
Jays won’t listen to Roy Halladay offers all the way up to the
deadline? Yeah, not so much:
While the official non-waiver trading deadline is 4 p.m. ET Friday,
the official Halladay trading deadline is Tuesday evening, according to
Ricciardi, though not a single GM in the game seems to believe he’ll
hold to that. Apparently we’ll go at least into that final day, as
Ricciardi had not approached Halladay about waiving his no-trade rights
as of Monday evening.
I still don’t think he’s going anywhere, but on the off chance he does, it’ ain’t happening today.
