BDD: Ricciardi Has No Leverage
At Baseball Daily Digest, I use some logic to deduce the Phillies as the only logical landing spot for Blue Jays ace Roy Halladay.
Comparatively, the Jays turned down the Phillies’ counter-offer of Carlos Carrasco, Jason Donald, Michael Taylor, and J.A. Happ, the #2, 4, 6, and 9 prospects according to BA. That offer was fair and extremely unlikely to be matched by anyone for whom Halladay would be willing to waive his no-trade clause. Ricciardi shot it down with flair.
