Roy Halladay traded to the Phillies, Cliff Lee to the Mariners in 3-way deal
According to Ken Rosenthal, the Phillies have agreed to a 3-team deal that would send Roy Halladay to the Phillies, Cliff Lee to the Mariners, and presumably a crapload of prospects to the Blue Jays.
If I'm a Phillies fan, I'd be a little perplexed at this one. Halladay is a year older, not necessarily any better than Lee, and will probably command a few more dollars in a potential extension. Also, he has zero postseason experience, and the Phillies probably had to part with Lee AND some prospects to land Halladay.
This one doesn't make a lot of sense to me, but like I said... Amaro has made some pretty shrewd moves lately, and perhaps the question marks about Lee's willingness to sign a long-term extension played a role in this one.
We'll see who "won" the deal, once we see who the Phillies and Mariners parted with, in terms of prospects.
