I sat and read the USA Today while eating my turkey sandwich, so the next few items of the day all come from there. First up, Roy Halladay — who is not going to be traded — on where he’d like to go if he were traded:
Halladay, 33, who has a full no-trade clause, says he hasn’t provided a list of teams he’d be willing to play for. Yet after going 10-3 with a 2.85 ERA in the powerful American League East this year, he’d certainly be willing to try life in the National League.
“I’d rather hit,” Halladay says, “than have to face Derek Jeter and A-Rod (Alex Rodriguez), (Hideki) Matsui and (Mark) Teixeira and all of the other guys.”
I shudder to think what that man would do in the N.L. West.
