Halladay wouldn't come to Texas
The Rangers discussions with the Blue Jays about Roy Halladay came to a serious roadblock late Thursday night.
Halladay informed the parties involved that he would not accept a trade with the Rangers.
The two teams weren’t close to a deal. But they were talking seriously until Halladay put an end to it.
The Rangers did make a run at pitchers Jarrod Washburn and Cliff Lee too. General manager Jon Daniels said they were very aggressive right up until the trade deadline. Ultimately they couldn’t get anything done.
Said one source: “Everybody wanted to talk about Holland, Smoak, Feliz and Borbon.”
