I still remember the answer our smug gm gavr to why he traded Lee, "to restock the farm" . It was a panic move as he traded him the same day they got Halladay. Probably didnt want the fanbase to think they could have both, so he panicked and gave him away. He traded a pitcher of the same quality of Halladay and got a Joe Blanton return.
