MLB Trade Rumors: Dodgers To Target Roy Halladay or Cliff Lee

SI. com's Jon Heyman just tweeted that the Dodgers list of priorities by the July 31st trade deadline will be middle relievers and one of either Roy Halladay or Cliff Lee.

#dodgers are looking at relief first. but they'll aim high on starters. rotation wish list: 1) halladay, 2) cliff lee.

Based on Heyman's tweet it is obvious that the Dodgers will target Roy Halladay first, and possibly offer Russell Martin or James Loney in a package, as we have previously discussed here on Faketeams.

Should the Dodgers get either Roy Halladay or Cliff Lee, will they be the favorites to go to the World Series in the NL? I can imagine a rotation of Halladay, Chad Billingsley, Clayton Kershaw, Hiroki Kuroda and Randy Wolf would be pretty tough to beat come September and October.
