At first I thought this was some kind of joke, but now I am finding links all across the Internet. Apparently the Pirates and Blue jays are in serious discussion for a deal sending Roy Halladay to Pittsburgh.
My first link is from our friendly GM's:
Pittsburgh Pirates are apparently in negotiations to acquire Vernon Wells and Roy Halladay from the Toronto Blue Jays in the packaged headlined by Jose Tabata.
From a few other sources, we have these comments:
Buccos GM Neal Huntington thinks that with stud ace Halladay and offensive force Wells in tow that the Pirates can contend with the Chicago Cubs for the NL Central and break out of this 16 year losing streak.
And this one:
The Pirates can contend with the Chicago Cubs for the NL Central and break out of this 16 year losing streak.
I am having a hard time believing the deals contents. One site is claiming McCutchen is actually part of the trade.
Apparently the deal could be done at some point today.
I will try to keep this updated as the day wears on. Check the comment section for updates, I will be posting from my Black Berry.
