White Sox To Sell The Farm For Roy Halladay?

New, 1 comment

The Chicago Tribune's Rick Morrissey believes that the Chicago White Sox should sell the farm to get Blue Jays right-hander Roy Halladay, ignoring all costs.

Morrissey feels the White Sox could build a package around left-hander John Danks and shortstop Alexei Ramirez. However, it appears White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen doesn't completely agree.

"I'll give you five of my best guys -- pick any five [for Halladay]," Guillen said Saturday. "If we don't go to the World Series, I get those guys back."

Friday, ESPN.com Jerry Crasnick reported that he believed that the White Sox would in fact be involved in a deal for Halladay; however, Crasnick noted that the White Sox probably would have difficulty adding the additional payroll, citing a decrease in attendance this year.

It's also difficult to imagine the Blue Jays even considering a deal with the White Sox unless they agree to part with infielder Gordon Beckham. Additionaly, Halladay has a full no-trade clause, and most insiders' doubt he would accept a deal to the White Sox.
