Via MLB Trade Rumors, Houston Astros ace Roy Oswalt has asked for a trade. I think he might look pretty good in Blue. Unfortunately, they will probably be asking for too much. On the other hand, he may be cheaper (tradewise) than Cliff Lee. Oswalt is under contract till 2011 at $15Million this year and $16Million next year. Lee is working on a $8Million contract this year and then becomes a free agent.
Who would you give up, if anybody, to get him? Likely, Ethan Martin, Chris Withrow or James McDonald would have to go in a trade- maybe even two of them.
