That's why it was a little tough to let Morton go in that Mclouth trade...he does have some insane stuff. He has number one type stuff, but he'll probably never put it all together. He's so very frustrating. He's an enigma. He's a god damn right handed Oliver Perez.
What do you guys think it would take to trade for Oswalt at this point?
Oswalt gets paid 15 mil this year, and 16 mil next year with a 2 mil buyout/16 mil option in 2012. So a year and a half for overpaying what is now a 3 WAR pitcher, probably going down to 2.5ish next year.
A couple of decentish prospects,, maybe some with high upside. Oswalt is still above average even with the age and injury concerns,
and he's one of my favorite pitchers. He's never posted a FIP above 4, and the Astros have to sell at some point, right? Maybe the Mariners make sense depending on Lee's status. Other Teams I could see are the Angels, Tigers, and perhaps the Braves, depending on all of these teams playoff statuses later on.
