Would You Take On Oswalt?

Apparently Oswalt can be had, http://tinyurl.com/5xxj8s.

For you lazy bloggers, here is the blurb on it:

Astros: Roy Oswalt would consider going elsewhere, but there are very few teams that could make a trade for the right-hander and that would get his required approval.

Houston doesn't have the pieces to acquire pitching unless it parted with Hunter Pence, and that's highly unlikely.

So why not through a poll up before tonights silver boot matchup between Texas and Houston.  Who here would make a run at Oswalt?

I'll say I would, if and only if, Davis,Hurley, and Feliz aren't included.  Oswalt, 30, is locked up for the next three years(possibly four).  He will make 14, 15, then 16 Million for the next three years of service.  His fourth year is an option year which he can opt out of and take a reduced buyout. 

So Im not really sure the 'Stros could look for a tremendous bounty.  Yes, he is controlled for three years.  Yes he is a great pitcher.  However, his age and option year on his contract raise red flags.
