Chicago Clubs recruit Halladay

Posted on: July 14, 2009 12:22 pm
Could the Chicago clubs be using the All-Star game to recruit Roy Halladay?

The Chicago Tribune reports Cubs pitcher Ted Lilly who was Halladay's teammate from 2004 to 2006, and White Sox pitcher Mark Buehrle could be trying to win over Halladay. 

"I don't know how good a recruiter I am," Buehrle said with a chuckle. "The last guy I called was Torii Hunter, and two weeks later he signed with L.A."

Lilly avoided the question, except to reiterate what a great teammate Halladay could be. But if Cubs GM Jim Hendry had a deal worked out and needed some "assistance," Lilly would surely volunteer.

Chicago Clubs recruit Halladay

Me being the Cub fan that I am, I dont think the starting pitching is where the improvements need to be made. The bullpen needs help, they need to get a closer that can actually get people out on a regular basis. The Cubs also need to start hitting the ball, they are 4th worst in offense in the majors. I would love to see Hallada become a cub but I feel that extra money like that should be spent elsewhere instead of starting pitching

Roy, you'll win just as many pennants with the Cubs as you will with the Jays. Why bother listening to Lilly?

The Sox aren't a bad choice compared to the Cubs. They've won a World Series in the last 100 years.
