In the past couple of days, the package Boston offered Toronto for ace Roy Halladay has started to come into sharper focus, and it turns out the Red Sox offered a massive, five for one deal. Why did Toronto turn it down?

One Very Expensive Free Pick Up

On Monday, the White Sox picked up Alex Rios, a two-time All-Star with the youth to overcome a couple sub par seasons and still grow into the player the Blue Jays thought he would become when they gave him a $70 million contract.
