Should San Diego go after Roy Oswalt?

Astros pitcher Roy Oswalt wants out of Houston.

 

 

HOUSTON (AP)—Astros general manager Ed Wade says ace Roy Oswalt has asked to be traded. Oswalt has made nine straight quality starts to open the season but is 2-6 despite a 2.66 ERA. He has gotten the lowest run support in the league.

Wade says he wants to win with Oswalt on the Astros. Houston went into Friday night’s game against Tampa Bay with the worst record in the National League at 14-27.

Wade says Oswalt’s agent, Bob Garber, contacted Houston owner Drayton McLane earlier this week to make the request.

As good as the rotation we have with Garland, Correia, LeBlanc, Latos, and Richard, and with the uncertantiy of Chirs Young's return to the lineup, I think the Padres should seriously consider picking up Oswalt. The years of service Oswald has been in the majors could be a huge asset for young guys like Mat, Wade and Clayton. And if CY does return and we do decide to pick up Oswalt...a rotation with Oswalt, Young, Garland, Corrreia and Latos? Plus LeBlanc and Richard on reserves? We would have a deadly rotation and depth to match. So, Friar faithful, would it be a good move to go after Roy Oswalt?
