Just read on ESPN.com that Roy Halladay is open to waiving his no-trade clause and allowing the Blue Jays to listen to offers from other teams. According to Buster Olney, Toronto would want either Billingsley or Kershaw in return, which he considers a “deal-breaker.” I consider this absolutely ludicrous. Why we would we trade an integral long-term piece of the starting rotation for a more expensive version of the same? Sure, it makes the Dodgers better in the short-term, but it still doesn’t deepen our rotation, which is the reason the move is necessary in the first place. To even have a chance of making this work the Dodgers would need to move either promising minor leaguers or position players.
