The Angels are getting serious about Halladay

Dec 9, 2009, 8:50 AM EDT

How do we know this?  They’re now willing to include Erick Aybar in a trade, which had previously been considered verboten.

The Blue Jays asked for Aybar during negotiations last summer.  If he’s on the table now, it’s much more likely that the Jays would consider sending Doc west.

    Aybar would certainly be a nice acquisition. Too late to take mulligans on Gonzalez and McDonald?

    I’m not buying the Halladay to the Angels rumors. It just doesn’t fit with how the Angels operate. Trading Aybar and a current starting pitcher would just create more holes for the team. They really don’t like to do that. I think that as Lackey’s demands on the number of years he wants comes down, they’ll be more likely to just re-sign him. Halladay would cost at least as much, but probably more money and require as many, if not more years and would take away some of the team’s depth. It doesn’t make sense.
