Jays: No window to talk to Halladay

Tony Mazz of the Globe reports that the Blue Jays will not let teams negotiate an extension with Roy Halladay before a trade is completed.

In other words, the Jays want your best prospects in return for only a guaranteed year and a half of Halladay.

Meanwhile, why would Halladay waive his no-trade rights without the incentive of a new deal? The short answer: He would not.

These things are all subject to negotiation, of course. But why would the Yankees, for instance, give up Phil Hughes, Jesus Montero and somebody else without knowing for sure they they’d have Halladay beyond 2010?
