Report: Jays discuss Halladay with Cubs

0 Comments

MLB.com’s Carrie Muskat reported Friday that the Blue Jays initiated contact with the Cubs on a potential Roy Halladay deal.
Muskat doesn’t believe anything will happen with the Cubs in that regard, but, if true, it’s still awfully interesting that the Jays are calling around to discuss Halladay with other teams. That suggests a deal is a lot more likely to take place than if they were just sitting back and waiting for the Yankees, Red Sox and others to come to them.
Chicago wouldn’t work for Halladay given the team’s needs. The Cubs already employ three starting pitchers making eight figures per year in Carlos Zambrano, Ryan Dempster and Ted Lilly, and the team is primarily interested in upgrading the offense.
