Why I Wish Drayton Would Sell the Team



Hey guys. Stro's fan in Philly here. Houston born and raised, Philly for school. Haven't gotten shanked at Citizens Bank in my Stro's jersey...yet. And of course I don't get to listen to Houston sports talk up here, but why is it being reported that we are no longer shopping Oswalt? Now I love Roy, but this team is not winning currently as is, and needs to be rebuilt (I'm actually in favor of shopping Lee and Lance as well to rebuild our farm system). I would much rather trade our assets now to ensure winning records 5 years from now rather than staying in mediocrity. Which is why I think Drayton needs to sell the team. In Drayton's mind, the Astros are never out of contention and are only one big trade/signing from a pennant. He doesn't believe in the word rebuild. Does anyone else agree with me or is Drayton doing the right thing by holding onto Roy hoping the NL Central plays down to our current level?
