And Toronto's GM proves the downside of baseball-trade Russian Roulette


The Blue Jays set the bar very high for teams interested in Halladay and were steadfast in their demand for two of Philadelphia's best and most developed young pitchers, J.A. Happ and Kyle Drabek. The Phillies moved on to their talks for Lee, and time will tell whether any other team will step forward to pursue Halladay aggressively.

So, in essence, the Phillies future rotation will potentially be:
Hamels
Lee
Happ
Drabek
Blanton
Excuse me if I look ahead, but is a 156-6 record (six losses to the Cubs) out of the question? Methinks not.
