Actually they did, it just turned out to be that those players never turned into anything, but at the time they gave up 4 of their top 10 prospects for Lee, and did the same for Halladay. Yet they only got back 2 of the Mariners top prospects, but even worse they were 18 & 19 year old pitchers. Horrible, horrible trade.
