Oh Lord, hear my prayers: Deliver Roy Halladay

As I was thinking about the surprise names that could be traded before the deadline, Halladay's name did come up and like magic:

Halladay is apparently unhappy in Toronto and has let management know it, and management has apparently responded by doing some quiet surveying of teams (such as St. Louis and the Dodgers) that are far, far away from the AL East in an effort to see what it could get for the 2003 Cy Young Award winner. Apparently, the returns other teams are getting for top-talent pitchers such as C.C. Sabathia, Rich Harden and Erik Bedard has inspired the Blue Jays to at least find out what it could get for one of the best pitchers in the American League. It remains unlikely that they'd deal him, but you never know.

Key Stat: Halladay has pitched 33 complete games since the start of the 2003 season. There are only eight other active major-league pitchers who have more than 33 in their careers.

I think we all know that the idea of Roy being traded to the AL East, let alone the Yanks is remote if not impossible, but being the good Sicilian boy that I am I want to pass along a message to Cashman: Brian, make Ricciardi an offer he can't refuse.
