An LA paper says the Dodgers currently aren't considering a trade for Oswalt because the Astros insist on the trading team picking up his full salary. While we're at it, this CBSSports report expresses doubt that Oswalt will be traded due to too many impediments to the trade. Also, in other news, here is the chron.com article on Oswalt saying he would accept a Yankees' trade. However, a potential obstacle to trading Oswalt to the Yankees is the Bronx team's interest in Clff Lee. The Mariners are already scouting the Yankees' farm system, says the NY Post; and the same article says the Yankees are scouting the Astros, in case Berkman becomes available.
