Oswalt, like Lee, is holding up his end of the bargain
Well if the Astros are looking to shop Roy Oswalt, they can't ask for much better a "Trade for Me!" performance than tonight.
7 strong innings, 2 runs, 1 walk, lowering his ERA to 3.08 and showing his value.
And it being an Astros game, of course it was a loss as Tim Lincecum is reestablishing his Cy Young credentials.
Both Oswalt and Cliff Lee, as I wrote earlier, are pitching like aces just as they are being shopped around.
And this could be the most exciting trade deadline we've seen in a LONG time where two pitchers could change the pennant races in the right deal and be the difference between glory and golf in October.
But as I wrote earlier about Brian Roberts, you don't want to hold off a trade for TOO long.
And the value might not ever be this high again.
