The Red Sox are “putting on a full-court press” to acquire Roy Halladay, according to a source, and are hoping to add the former Cy Young winner to the top of their rotation to go with Josh Beckett and Jon Lester.
“They would love to get it wrapped up before the winter meetings (beginning Dec. 7),” the source said of the Red Sox, who made a big push to deal for Halladay last summer.
The article goes on to speculate that Boston would probably have to give up Clay Buchholz along with minor leaguer pitcher/shortstop, Casey Kelley.
I absolutely love the idea of the Red Sox getting Halladay. With Halladay, Josh Beckett, Jon Lester and Daisuke Matsuzaka they would have the best top four starters in any rotation in baseball.
