Four or five years too late, if you ask me.

Didn't think that would happen so soon...

May take a while for a deal.

I could see the Tigers getting involved.

Just looking at his 2010 stats, he'd be the second best pitcher on the Sox right now behind Danks.

It's probably in Houston's best interest to trade him while he has value, at 32 I think he's still got a few good seasons left in him. It'll suck for the fans to see what is basically the face of the franchise (other than Berkman) traded away.

I'm not saying he's not good, he's still outstanding. I'm saying he should have asked to get out of Houston years ago.

Other than 2006, this is frighteningly similar to our own exploits over the last couple years.

Outside of 2007, our problem has been performance, not talent. Houston ran some bad teams out there the last few years.

You said he should have requested a trade 4 or 5 years ago which would have been their WS year or the following year. That doesn't make any sense.

Maybe he'd like to come to the last place White Sox.

So change it to three or four years. It wasn't meant to be exact.

Umm we're in fourth place thank you very much... :bandance:

I thought the Rangers might look into this if he's really available. I get the sense he likes Texas and they are in first place right now.

Didn't see this posted in this thread but apparently Phil Garner believes that Peavy could try and lure Oswalt to the Sox if the Sox tried to trade for him. He also thinks that Brad Ausmus could lure him to the Dodgers as well.

Where's he gonna play, or, when's he gonna pitch?

I don't think Garcia would do well in a bullpen role.

Also, I fear that either Danks, or Hudson, or both, would have to head to HOU in such a deal.

Some have complained the Sox spend too much of their payroll on pitching. Oswalt would further the imbalance.

All that aside, I'd love another ace starter on the Sox.

Whoever said Detroit, I know a guy in their front office and he promised me they won't trade for him.

I could see it being one of the teams in the AL West.

Peavy could try, but he wouldn't be too successful. Unless the Sox win 15 in a row.

...and figure out how to free up $15,000,000.

The notion of trading Oswalt is cooling. Looks like they'll wait until the deadline.

I'm suddenly leery of NL aces coming to the AL after what Peavy, a former Cy Young award winner in the NL, has done so far. On the other hand, look at what Ted Lilly has done since switching from the AL to the NL:

W L win % ERA
AL (7 yrs) 59 57 .509 4.52
NL (5 yrs) 45 31 .592 3.88

There's a yahoo article today saying the Twins are a darkhorse for Oswalt. That scares me - in the off chance the Sox go on a run by the deadline. The Twins or Tigers could really give themselves a shot in the arm with Oswalt.
