Ricciardi Will Charge Premium for Yanks and BoSox for Halladay

The Toronto Globe and Mail is reporting that Blue Jays GM JP Ricciardi is extending his self-imposed deadline of today for trading Roy Halladay because there are at least two teams who have caught his attention.  While the Phillies may or may not have cooled in their quest for the ace, these other teams are talking seriously enough for Ricciardi to listen. 

While  other Blue Jays sources are confirming that the odds of a Halladay deal happening appear "remote", they also say that Ricciardi will charge those two teams a "premium" as the added cost of having him remaining in the AL East.

The paper is reporting that Jays execs have their eyes on  Red Sox prospects closer Daniel Bard and starter Clay Buchholz.
