Astros owner Drayton McLane said Monday that the team was “willing to look at anything” between now and the trade deadline and that he will not rule out absorbing a portion of a contract if it allows the Astros to get better prospects in a trade.

.....

“It’s totally and completely dependent on the offers you’re getting in return,” he said of his willingness to absorb salary. “We’d have to evaluate that at the time.” http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/sports/bb/7066422.html

Exactly pinstripe. This is exactly what he should have said. The Astros need to start looking at the future, and unfortunately if that means eating some of Oswalt's contract to get the prospects they need, then do it.

Nefalti Perez.. he's the rangers current Closer(or set up man).. not sure if the Rangers brought Francisco back as the closer.

Again, we discussed this just last week... there is NO Neftali Perez on the Rangers. If you think you are going to get Neftali FELIZ in a deal for Oswalt, you and the Astros can go jump in a lake.

That'd be heavily lopsided for the Rangers.

It exists;), maybe Neifi is making a comeback with the Rangers.
