I know that the conventional wisdom is that there is no way that Halladay ends up with the Yanks, but I'm not so sure. If they're interested, they will not make that knowledge public, and I have to think they're interested. Remember when Teixeira was going to go to either Boston or Anaheim? Yeah, exactly.
The reason I think it's possible is because the Yankees are almost certainly willing to part with Joba. If the rest of the bill is a couple of minor league prospect (granted, they will be blue chips), the Yankees pull the trigger on it no question. Why wouldn't you make that trade?
This all may be a pipe dream, but I'm just not convinced that it is so crazy.
