According to MLBtraderumors.com:

According to Joe Strauss of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch , the Cardinals' interest in Blue Jays ace Roy Halladay is very real.

Here's what Strauss tweeted just a moment agoAsked about the price tag for Halladay, a club source said: "Give Ricciardi all our minor-league rosters and let him circle any 5 names."

A deal with the Cardinals would start with Brett Wallace , and might also include shortstop Pete Kozma , catcher Bryan Anderson , outfielder Daryl Jones and/or right-hander Clay Mortensen .  We're just throwing the Birds' top prospects out on the table, but that's what it's going to take.  According to Erik Manning of FutureRedbirds.net , via the Post-Dispatch's Bernie Miklasz , the Jays "showed a lot of pre-draft interest" in both Wallace and Kozma.
