Phillies could use Cliff Lee to get Roy Halladay from the Blue Jays

It seems a bit crazy, but not completely out of the picture. Ken Rosenthal is basically tossing this one out there, and it's definitely nothing more than a rumor that he thought up in his own head, but it's very interesting nonetheless.

The Phillies could try to work out a 3-team deal, giving up Lee to a team who would then send prospects to the Blue Jays, and the Phillies would send a couple prospects of their own to the Jays as well, giving the Phillies Halladay in the end.

Rosenthal says that it could make sense, since the Phillies preferred Halladay from the start.

I'm not entirely sure if this is even realistic, and I think it would be disastrous on the Phillies part, especially with the way Lee has pitched for them. But if the Red Sox could somehow get involved and land Cliff Lee, I'd be alright with it.
