Others wait as Halladay talks play out

Posted on: July 30, 2009 5:30 pm

They're stacked up like jets on a runway, but rival clubs waiting in line for Toronto to move third baseman Scott Rolen, infielder Marco Scutaro and relievers Scott Downs, Justin Frasor and/or Brandon League don't appear close to receiving clearance.

The problem is that Toronto, deep in trade talks for Roy Halladay, has not yet moved its ace. And one source with a club in talks with the Blue Jays says that's holding everything else up.

Cincinnati has been trying to work toward a Rolen deal for much of the week. Minnesota is interested in Scutaro (and Oakland's Orlando Cabrera, but reports of the Twins' interest in Freddy Sanchez before Pittsburgh dealt him to San Francisco were greatly overexaggerated). Several clubs have inquired about Downs, Frasor and League.

And meantime, the two Los Angeles clubs, Boston and Texas continue to look for an opening in the Halladay negotiations.

Others wait as Halladay talks play out

Acc radio is sounding like the Marlins may be dealing for Scott Rolen or a deal for Victor Martinez to boost up their offense. Jeremy Hermida and Andrew Miller is on the table, whichever goes down first. They Jays might screw themselves if they get too stuck on moving one player if they don't act on standing offers.
