Competing executives continue to think a package of outfielder Michael Taylor, shortstop Jason Donald and RHP Carlos Carrasco isn't enough to motivate the Blue Jays to move star pitcher Roy Halladay to the Phillies -- though one AL exec said, flatteringly of Taylor, "He's a beast.'' He meant it in a good way, I am sure.
In any case, outside execs still believe that the Phillies' top pitching prospect Kyle Drabek has to be the key piece of a trade with the Phillies. While Drabek once had Tommy John surgery and at one point had a rep for cockiness, he's the type of dynamic talent the Jays need to get back.
