    Minaya denied the rumor was true.

    True or not, he was smart for doing so. This trade would have left nothing in the farm system. Literally, nothing. Hallday can't turn this team around on his own. Only Babe Ruth could.

    Another thing, Halladay isn't even the best pitcher in his own league. People need to start realizing that.

      If Ruth would pitch every other day and bat cleanup.

        Even once every 5 days would be an improvement.

          this was shot down by a few sources as completely untrue
          "all the mets road wins against the dodgers this year have occured at Dodger Stadium"---Ralph Kiner

          "Blind people came to the park just to listen to him pitch"---Reggie Jackson, talking about Tom Seaver

              Actually, this deal would have been a no-brainer on the Mets part IMO. To add one of the top pitchers in baseball to pair with Johan going into 2010 and not give up your best positional prospect (Flores) or your best 2 pitching prospects (Holt and Mejia) would be a steal. Even if you only have Halliday for one year you then get 2 number 1 draft picks when he walks in 2011. You are giving up F-Mart who still has a lot of promise, but other than that what are we talking about here? Niese projects to be a #3 or #4 starter at best, Parnell has nothing other than a fastball which he can't pinpoint and Tejada is a light hitting shortstop prospect.

              I'd be surprised if this rumor is legit. There HAD to be more involved. FWIW, I don't think that Halliday wants to come here anyway.

                I can't imagine the Blue Jays agreeing to that trade. Too many teams are willing to give them more.

                  While I don't believe the rumor is legit, we still don't know what other teams are willing to give. It could be that teams aren't offering what the Blue Jays (or we) consider to be a decent offer.

                    Which is typical of him. He always gives ambiguous answers. This rumor has been shot down as false

                      But you wrote that Omar had denied that the rumor is true.

                        Regardless, the rumor is false. Keith Law and Joel Sherman have reported it as such.

                          Heyman, on the Fan, stood by the story and basically said the Mets were lying.

                            Obviously he's not going to admit he was wrong. Keith Law said it was false and he used to work in the Jays organization. He also said the Jays would have wanted Jenrry Mejia in the deal since he's considered one of the best pitching prospects in our system. Riccardi himself denied it. Joel Sherman said it was false.

                              If true, we just turned down future hall of famer Roy Halladay for a bag of balls. But hey, we've got Ollie Perez to look forward to for the next 2 1/2 years. yay!
