Phillies and Blue Jays in talks for possible Roy Halladay trade

There is a major debate right now between the Blue Jays and Phillies regarding whom the Phils would be willing to give up vs. whom the Blue Jays want in return for Roy Halladay. The Phillies would be willing to give up Kyle Drabek and some of their "second level" prospects such as Lou Marson and Jason Donald and probably a few others off this "second level" list. The Jays meanwhile are insisting on the inclusion of not only Drabek but also players such as Dominic Brown, Michael Taylor, JA Happ and possibly a few from the "second level" list.

The Phillies, as well as other potential suitors, are hoping the price will come down the closer it gets to the July 31st trading deadline but that does not appear to be the case. The Blue Jays appear to be committed to getting "their" price for Halladay.
