No Halladay Celebrating?

First, a recap of the supposed three-four team deal that is supposed to take place once all the i’s are dotted and t’s crossed:

  • The Phillies get Roy Halladay , Phillippe Aumont , Tyson Gillies , Juan Ramirez , and $6 millon.
  • The Mariners get Cliff Lee .
  • The Blue Jays get Kyle Drabek , Brett Wallace , and Travis d’Arnaud .
  • The A’s get Michael Taylor .

    Wednesday morning comes with news of a snag in the blockbuster, though.

    According to Bob Elliot of the Toronto Sun, someone, somewhere in this deal has apparently failed their physical, and the entire deal(s) will be placed on hold.

    Undoubtedly, as this news evolves, the deal could change dramatically. If Drabek is hurt, are the Phillies willing to move JA Happ? If Taylor is injured, will inability to move him to Oakland for Wallace kill the deal? Heaven forbid either Halladay or Lee is hurt!

    The news will continue to break on this. Keep watching for updates.
