Wow! Si.com's Jon Heyman is reporting that the Phillies are in agreement on a three-team trade with the Mariners and Blue Jays to acquire star pitcher Roy Halladay. Halladay has to agree to a contract extension to complete the deal but that is apparently a formality.
The deal is rumored to have Lee going to the M's for prospects who would go to Toronto. The prospects have not been confirmed. No word if Happ or Hamels were involved.
I am going to hold judgement until I hear who all is involved but Wow! that is a blockbuster.
Cliff Lee's second half and playoff performance will never be forgotten in Philadelphia.
* UPDATE: Now Heyman is backing off! "sorry, quick trigger finger. Mariners definitely the third team. checking now with cliff lee is the pltcher they get." Some people are saying maybe it's Cole Hamels
**Update: The source said Phillipe Aumont — a Canadian right-hander — is among the players headed from Seattle to Toronto in the deal; the source added the Philadelphia is expected to send one of its outfield prospects, possibly Michael Taylor, to the Blue Jays. (foxsports)
