Senza Tema D'Infamia Ti Rispondo

Our IT Sleuthing department uncovered two Wednesdays ago this doozy, and it's rather remarkable- an excerpt from an iMeeting chat exchange between the Phillies and Blue Jays assistant general managers, held at some undisclosed time period this winter, concerning the negotiations of the eventual trade for Roy Halladay. For the sake of team privacy, we'll not reveal actual screen names (oh just go with it). Cue the ZWR "Exclusive" music...

[Blue Jays] So, what are you thinking here...
[Phillies] Oh, do not ask, "What is it?"
[Blue Jays] I know, I know- Halladay. So what do we have?

[Phillies] Time for you and time for me, and time yet for a hundred indecisions, and for a hundred visions and revisions.
[Blue Jays] So you wanna throw a bunch of options out there? Who do you think we're talking?
[Phillies] So how should I presume?
[Blue Jays] I mean, you know what we need to get back/want...
[Phillies] And how should I presume?
[Blue Jays] Fine, play that game. Moving on. /omg chat joke what R U wearing?/
[Phillies] My morning coat, my collar mounting firmly to the chin, my necktie rich and modest, but asserted by a simple pin.
[Blue Jays] LOL. Ok, brass tacks. And Amaro's alright with you handling the preliminary stuff?
[Phillies] Am an attendant lord, one that will do to swell a progress, start a scene or two, advise the prince.
[Blue Jays] Gotcha. Just wanted to be sure you could talk names. I'm thinking Brown, Taylor, Drabek, and Happ
[Phillies] That is not what I meant at all.
[Blue Jays] Fine, keep Happ. Brown, Taylor, and Drabek?
[Phillies] That is not it at all.
[Blue Jays] We're trading the face of our franchise, here. I'll be blunt: we need a haul. The fans and media will kill us!
[Phillies] There will be time, there will be time to prepare a face to meet the faces that you meet.
[Blue Jays] *Sigh* This isn't going anywhere. I have to run, anyhow. Let's meet up for dinner down in Clearwater- meet me at that bar down by the water?
[Phillies] I shall wear white flannel trousers, and walk upon the beach.
