Roy Oswalt: The 2nd winningest pitcher in Houston Astros history was just dealt to the Phillies, but the trade is still pending due to Oswalt’s no-trade clause. (Details on still fuzzy on who the Astros would get; JA Haap is thought to be part of the package.) It’d be silly for Oswalt to reject the deal – he hasn’t pitched in the postseason since 2005, when Houston was swept in the World Series by the White Sox. The Phillies, written off by some 10 days ago, have surged back into the postseason picture on the strength of a 7-game winning streak. Houston has no shot at October baseball. Oswalt turns 33 in a month; we’ll update this post throughout the day as the story develops. [My Fox Houston]
