^^ No clue, don't have insider, but it seems as though people have told me it's in an article from the Sun Times.

If Riccardi even said Beckham, KW would say Goodbye. If the Blue Jays were offered Beckham in a deal for Halladay there's no way they would reject it. No offense to you guys, but Beckham is our future.

Becham cannnot be traded until 1 year he signed the deal with the sox. He signed August 12th so he cannot be traded till then meaning he would have to be a ptbnl like micha last year

Exactly. Plus KW wouldn't even trade Beckham anyways.

Yeah. That's pretty crappy.

I know I'm going to get nailed for saying this but I'd rather do something like this:

Tyler Flowers, Viciedo, Poreda, Richard, and John Shelby for him.

I love Flowers, but after the Sox got Phegly idk, they are basically the same player.

Thanks WCF. Should have ran it by you first, but was it just like that Sun Times article?

That is where the info came from, the Sun-Times article. Then the rest of it talked about how the Rays are in the hunt for him too, just that it is highly likely that it won't happen.

I love Halladay, but as a Sox fan I don't know how you give up Danks unless Halladay signs an extension. I know it would be Danks, Rameriz and probably more, and if it's just for 1.5 years of Doc, I don't do it.

One. article states a Chicago writer's opinion as to what they should offer for Doc. Unless someone posted the ESPN Insider article no one knows exactly what was offered, expect the Jays rejected the Sox. Reading is fundamental.

The insider article stated nothing about the players offered.

I would not trade Danks and Ramirez for Halladay.

I would trade any package of minor leaguers that the Jays want something like we offered for Peavy seems fair.

I don't understand it either.

Danks and Alexei for Halladay is rape.(for the White Sox)

Wow! I am not really high on Ramirez, especially since Fields(who, I know has not lived up to expectations, but look what he did in 2007) can play third, Beckham at SS. I would much rather see Ramirez get traded than Tyler Flowers. I watched that guy for a few games in the AFL this year, and he can flat out rake. Big Boy, too.

Beckham could be traded, he would have to be a player to be named later no?

This is simply exploring the option, nothing more, nothing less. I doubt KW was surpised J.P. rejected it.

Ditto. A number 2 at best.

It's not that we are so high on him, but with him and Beckham as the future middle infield for the Sox, how often do you have 2 MI that can hit .280 and be 20-20 guys or even 25-25 guys. Beckham will hit for power, maybe not this year, but it will come around. I don't want Halladay anyways, we would have to give up to much for just a year and a half of him. Flowers is going to be a legit power hitter in the big leagues. Now if the Blue Jays said we will take Poreda, Richard, Viciedo and Getz, I would do it in a heartbeat.

Ramirez is a THREAT. I Would not trade Alexei and Danks for Halladay. If Were the WS Id trade a bunch of specs which I know they have. Keep Beckam and move Ramirez back to 2B. You guys would probably have the best middle INF duo at SS & 2B (If Gordan pans out of course)
