Oswalt Deal Dead?

According to Fox Sports, Roy Oswalt doesn’t want to be traded to the Phillies. Considering he has a no trade clause, that’s a dealbreaker.

Oswalt does not want to go to the Phillies in a trade, a source with direct knowledge of his thinking said Monday.

The Cardinals, meanwhile, do not feel confident in their ability to land Oswalt, another source said the previous day.

“I’d be surprised if Oswalt goes (anywhere),” an AL executive said. “It sounds like both he and the Astros are difficult.”
