Scribe sets Phillies' odds for Halladay at 35 percent
Re-Rewrite:Todd Zolecki, a guest of WIP radio, suggested the Phillies have a fighting chance of landing Blue Jays ace Roy Halladay in a trade before Christmas, setting the likelihood at 35 percent. J.A. Happ and either Domonic Brown or Michael Taylor would be part of the deal, according to reports. Other outlets, including FoxSports, are calling the Phillies and the Angels frontrunners for the right-hander's services. The asking price for Halladay, who is a free agent after the season, has dropped since the trade deadline since his presence will impact only one World Series, not two. And the World Series is exactly where the Phillies are going if they make this trade.
