Lets face it.The Astros will probably throw in the towel at some point this summer. Rumor as it that Roy Oswalt is open to a trade when that happens. I see a great opportunity for the Halos to stabilize their starting rotation by plugging in a guy like him
Oswalt has career averages of 7.38 K/9, 2.07 BB/9 and ERA-FIP of 3.21-3.35
The success Oakland and Texas have had is largely a result of strong starting pitching(and some decent hitting).A starting 4 of Weaver, Oswalt, Pineiro, Santana might be enough to overtake our division rivals. The 5th spot would go to either Kazmir or Saunders depending on who is the least crappy of the two.
If you were a baseball executive trained in the ways of Ninjitsu, would you strike? and who would you be willing to send Houston's way?(don't say Q)
BTW he is due $31 million over the next 2 years w/ a $2 million buyout for 2013.
