Roy Oswalt who along with Ted Lilly will become the center of attention for teams looking to upgrade their rotation before the trading deadline took a moment to remark about one of the teams that had expressed interest in him at one time. That is until they traded for the Mariners Cliff Lee.
“That’s a good pickup for them,” Oswalt said of the Rangers’ move. “He’s a good pitcher, and adding a quality starter like that is going to make them better.”
Oswalt who has to waive his no-trade clause to be traded also said,
“It’s going to have to work out for both of us (he and the Astros) before anybody does it.“
