Doc to Phillies “Very Close”

Rumors are absolutely everywhere but here is the absolute latest per ESPN’s Jayson Stark who is the most reliable voice on the Phillies…

NOT 100% done yet. Phillies trade Lee to Seattle for 3 prospects. Phillies move Michael Taylor, Travis D’Arnoud to Toronto. Phillies keep a Seattle prospect and get Halladay. The holdup is getting Halladay to sign an official extension.

Moving Lee hurts, but keeping our two top prospects Kyle Drabek and Dom Brown would be outstanding. It’s a shame we wont have that 1 year of the dream rotation but Lee simply would not sign an extension and Halladay is willing to commit long-term to come to a winning organization. It’ll be really interesting to see what kind of prospects we keep from Seattle.
