In a move that brought evidently one of Philadelphia’s most beloved heroes to the city Amaro traded for arguably the best pitcher in baseball. Halladay brought the fans invaluable memories as they retooled for another run deep into the playoffs.
His perfect game against the Marlins followed by the legendary no-hitter in game one of the 2010 NLDS alone could give it the top trade in the last 10 years. Halladay retired a Phillie, with a Cy Young Award, a second place finish in Cy Young voting the following year, and two all-star appearances. This adding to a Hall of Fame career and his legend in Philadelphia sports lore.
