Roy Rumors: Ken Rosenthal on the Oswalt Trade Market

10

Ken Rosenthal provides us with a summary of all the reasons the Astros are having a hard time trading Oswalt. Roy reportedly wants his 2012 option guaranteed to waive his no-trade clause. His list of acceptable teams is a "moving target". The Astros won't eat enough salary, and Ed Wade is "trying to hit a home run" in terms of the prospects he gets back. You get the definite sense that there is going to have to be some movement toward compromise by all parties involved (especially Oswalt, who may be to blame if he doesn't get traded) to get this deal done. We also hear that the Astros are listening on Brett Myers, and that he is also amenable to returning to Houston next season.
