Discussion: Should the Phillies trade for Oswalt?
The rumors are swirling and the return is murky so far but it appears that the Phillies are on the verge of acquiring Roy Oswalt from the Houston Astros. While the return isn’t known yet it is safe to say Dominic Brown is not part of the equation, as the Phillies are likely to move Jayson Werth in an effort to free up money and get prospects in return. This leaves me with a few questions to consider:
1. Did the Phillies make the right move trading Cliff Lee before the season?
2. Should they be moving Werth now, while they are in the middle of a playoff race?
3. Is Oswalt worth the money and prospect return for the Phillies?
4. Will the Phillies have the financial freedom to pursue free agents this offseason?
