    Lee would have to agree to it, remember. I'm not saying I know he woudn't...but it would be a hurdle.

    I'd be surprised if they traded any of those guys. If they trade Oswalt I'll be flat-out pissed.

    Seconded.

    Pitching puts "Kiss of Death" in a rather scary light!

    if you're roy oswalt, would you pass on a chance to pitch for the red sox? and if you're the astros, and they were offering a tiger-like deal for him.... buchholz and pedoria, for instance.....

    just saw this on ESPN:
    i would LOVE to turn lee into a legitimate young starter, especially if one of them is lincecum.

    what if lee and oswalt became lincecum, buchholz and pedoria?

    From all the articles I've ever read about Oswalt, he has no desire for the spotlight, which is exactly what a place like Boston would bring. He is the epitome of a good 'ol boy...and Drayton gave him a tractor.

    Oswalt and Berkman are untouchable...I don't care if you're a new GM...they are like this generation's Bagwell and Biggio.

    maybe I'm undervaluing Buchholtz (or maybe I'm pissed at what Taylor B. gave us)...but I wouldn't deal Oswalt for that combo (him and Pedroia)


    but Lee for Lincecum in a heartbeat.. that'd be sick.

    I would not trade Roy for anyone other than Santana and still is he really that much better than a Roy Oswalt that you have locked up?

    Lee I would move in a heartbeat as far as Lance goes I would be pissed off and like Roy his contract is not that crazy compared to others.

    I agree that sometimes you need to take a step back in order to take two forward so I am open to ideas but those ideas should include Lance being your everyday first baseman for years to come and Roy being your number 1

    Why would you trade Roy Oswalt unless you get back a guaranteed Roy Oswalt + something else?

    790 reporting Astros on verge of acquiring Tejada. Creppy Crawl said this in other thread. Wonder who we'd give up?

    "very serious conversations" as we speak... serious enough that the trade has been called "likely"

    Just said on 790.

    Oh god. Please be Scott, Burke and Wiggs. NO TEJADA AT SHORT! Only if he plays third is this acceptable and it is still iffy.

    Man, Tejada scares me. Sure it would turn Adam Everett's semi-automatic out bat into a more reliable one, but the defense on the left side of the field will be shaky.

    How is his range at shortstop?

    Maybe the Astros flip Scott, Burke, and Wiggington plus more so that Everette stays at SS and Tejada plays 3rd?

    But then that scenario leaves a HUGE hole with the #2 starter.
