Reports are saying that the Phillies and Astros have reached a deal to trade Roy Oswalt to the Phillies. All that is needed is an agreement by Roy to the trade.It's been no secret here in Houston that Roy wants to go to a winner. The Astros are pathetic and need to get serious about re-building. Oswalt is one of their best players but by the time the Astros can get back into contention, Roy will be past his prime. So they should get what they need for the future (which is everything) for him now. He is my favorite Astro. It would be nice to see him going to my favorite team.
The Phillies sem to have regained their hitting mojo, and have won their last 7 games. With three top startes, Hallady, Hamels and now Oswalt, they will be hard to beat.
