Rangers still working seriously on Halladay

The Rangers still haven’t given up hope of acquiring Roy Halladay. Word is the Rangers still have significant on-going communications going on between them and the Blue Jays with under 24 hours to go before the Trade Deadline.

There are also indications that the Rangers are not going to let money get in the way if they can land Halladay for a reasonable package.

The Blue Jays are not going to give him away. Some of the names that have been thrown around include first baseman Justin Smoak, shortstop Elvis Andrus, outfielder Julio Borbon and pitchers Neftali Feliz and Derek Holland.

The Rangers have to weigh that against having for Halladay for just 11/2 years. But apparently this going to come down to a baseball decision. The Rangers apparently are not going to let money get in the way of getting this guy.

    Dangit Coletti. Pull the trigger. The Jays are begging for a good offer, so give it to them. The Dodgers need this right now. As Earl Weaver says, win now and worry about the rest later.

    Do not trade Holland, Feliz or Andrus under any circumstances. We (the Rangers) need to be pursing a bat at this point, as our pitching is surprisingly serviceable at this point.
