Angels Back In On Halladay

New, 4 comments

Angels owner Arte Moreno told the Los Angeles Times that he's still interested in acquiring a top-of-the-line starter such as Roy Halladay, and that his team is willing to pay a hefty price.

Moreno said,

"We're keeping all our options open, we don't have any financial constraints."

The Angels were originally considered one of the favorites to land Halladay, however, recent reports suggested that they were unwilling to part with top prospects, which would likely remove them from the picture.

Being that the Angels don't have the deepest farm system they would probably have to give up some players on their major league roster. Likely any deal would have to include shortstop Brandon Wood who we've heard the Blue Jays have had serious interest in.

Rumors in early July were that the Angels were preparing a "huge package" for Halladay that looked something like, pitcher Jered Weaver, a top pitching prospect such as Trevor Reckling or Jordan Walden, top hitting prospect Brandon Wood and a young big leaguer such as Erick Aybar or Howie Kendrick.

No idea if that package is still on the table, but if you're curious what a Halladay package might look like, here it is. Two words, absurd and ridiculous.
