Is moving Oswalt the best move?

 

Not sure?? Well neither am I. I would hate to see him go to the Cardinals or another team in our division. But if he brought back solid prospects it could be alright.....right??? I’m torn because I don’t want to the see the Astros go into 2011 with less talent than they have in 2010. Without Oswalt you lose your legitimate #1. Remember the Shane Reynolds years?? Want that again?? Do you REALLY think Drayton is going to go get us a solid ace?? If you do…..YOU SHOULDN’T DRINK THIS EARLY IN THE MORNING. If they decline Berkman’s option; how much worse is our offense? Do you think the Astros will go sign Jorge Cantu as a free agent?? They should…but will they??? The Astros are not a good team…that is obvious. But with the addition of a solid free agent here and there (here would be 3rd base and there would be 2nd base) we could be at least respectable and worth watching. The plan appears to be "We stink till 2012 and then we HOPE we don’t stink". Sure there may be a few kids in A and AA-ball coming up that might work out; but we don’t have Bagwell, Biggio, Gonzalez, Caminiti and Finley coming up to develop and turn into something special. We have a bunch of guys at the AAA level that no one wants. Trading off whatever veteran talent we have just doesn’t seem like a good idea to me. I would hope that the Astros would wise up, open up the pocketbook and add some real talent to what we have until these "Baby-stros" down in A-ball are ready.
