The Boston Globe is reporting that the Blue Jays may be forced to trade Roy Halladay if they are forced to cut their payroll. Blue Jays GM J.P. Ricciardi responded saying they would have to "exhaust every avenue" before that would happen, but didn't rule out the possibility. Halladay has a full no trade clause, but would likely waive it to pitch for a winner. Halladay is making 14.25 million dollars in 2009 and 15.75 in 2010, so he may be hard to move. Halladay has a career 15-6 record against the National League, and was 20-11 last season with a 2.78 ERA.
The majority of teams are not looking to add payroll, but that could change if injuries come up. The Dodgers, Braves, Phillies, Cubs, and Giants are all teams that could make a move for Halladay.
