As trade negotiations between the Phillies and Toronto continued yesterday, the Phillies were trying to steer the Blue Jays toward a package led by pitcher Carlos Carrasco, infielder Jason Donald and others in their attempt to acquire righthander Roy Halladay, sources with knowledge of the negotiations said. On Thursday, the Jays asked for pitchers Kyle Drabek and J.A. Happ and outfielder Dominic Brown, but the Phillies think that's too high a price. They don't want to deal both pitchers, according to a baseball source.

TORONTO - For nearly three minutes Saturday, they stood and cheered Roy Halladay as he threw a handful of warm-up pitches. "Something I'll never forget," Halladay would say later. This was a chance to give thanks almost 18 months overdue. For 12 seasons, Halladay pitched here. These Blue Jays fans witnessed the metamorphosis of a 21-year-old able to flirt with a no-hitter on pure talent alone into the game's best pitcher with a machinelike work ethic, only for the narrative to flourish in a different city, a different league, and a different country.

During his introductory news conference as a member of the Phillies last week, Roy Halladay emphasized how much his time in Toronto meant to him and his family. In case the Toronto fans didn't hear that, Halladay made it even more clear yesterday. The former Blue Jays star took out a full-page ad in the Toronto Sun to thank the fans for the 15 years he spent with the organization. "I am sincerely grateful for the incredible support and compassion the Blue Jays fans have always shown me," Halladay wrote.

NOT TORONTO - And now for something completely different. The Phillies begin a 10-game road trip at Citizens Bank Park Friday night against the Toronto Blue Jays. Yes, the Phillies are beginning a road trip at home. As with any road game, the Phillies will bat first, take batting practice second and wear their gray road uniforms. And, as in any interleague road game, the designated hitter will be part of each team's lineup. Unlike any road game, the Phillies will get to sleep in their own beds, dress in their home clubhouse and be supported by their own fans.

TORONTO - On Monday, J.A. Happ attempted to revive his starting pitching career with five scoreless innings in Toronto's shutout win over the Phillies. On Tuesday, Cole Hamels was roughed up for the second time in his first three starts, adding another dose to a season that already began with uncertainty and skepticism surrounding the highest-paid player in franchise history. After getting swept in the home half of their four-game, home-and-home interleague series with the Blue Jays, the Phillies had to be hoping better things awaited them in the Great White North.

TORONTO - The hottest pitcher in baseball needed six more outs Sunday afternoon for his fourth straight complete game. When the eighth inning began, Cliff Lee had not allowed a home run to the last 177 batters he faced over a span of 33 days. He had thrown 89 pitches in seven innings and there was no reason to question whether he could finish this one off, too. "You never know," Lee later said. "There's still a lot of game left at that point. " Five hitters later, there was Charlie Manuel yanking a shell-shocked Lee as the home crowd at Rogers Centre finally celebrated something other than a holiday or an opposing pitcher on this weekend.
