Maybe Halladay? If not, then maybe Harden?

I know Halladay has not been rumored to be available, but doesn't it seem logical for the Jays to move him. Over 11 seasons as a Blue Jay, they have not once made the playoffs. Now this team is in last place of an amazing division, the logical thing would be to deal your high value players and rebuild for the future. So hey let's take a look at what Halladay might cost us.

Prospective Deals:

Tony Thomas Jr, Donny Veal, Eric Patterson/Tyler Colvin, Josh Donaldson/Jake Fox, and Marquez Smith for Roy "Doc" Halladay.

Here's how I look at this, Thomas Jr. can possibly move to SS or Hill can(I know I'm being a little optimistic), Smith can give another option for the future at the corners than Ahrens, Donaldson or Fox can do the same as Smith but with Arencibia, Patterson or Colvin can be a MLB ready replacement if they deal Wells or decide to trash Lind, and Veal gives them a power arm. They do have Snider coming up in the OF and guys like Ahrens and Arencibia as well but they have not been progressing as well as they should, IMO.

Tony Thomas Jr, Donny Veal, Eric Patterson, Jake Fox, and Marquez Smith for Harden.

Another situation where I could see a Thomas Jr. position switch. Smith gives the A's one thing their system lacks, a good 3B prospect, Patterson and Fox give them MLB ready bats, and Veal is yet again the power arm.

My logic my be flawed here so please feed me your thoughts.
