    Is Roy Oswalt an option?

    We're not going to make it to the all star break with our rotation at this rate. Even if Pettitte can still pitch, he can't make up for Hughes and Garcia.

    His pricetag can't be that high? We really need someone to stop the bleeding. Thoughts?
    A fool and his money can throw one heck of a party!

    Mitchell's probably going to be a reliever.

    He's projected to be a reliever. But I want to see what he can offer as a starter first.

    I think we'll be just fine. I expect improvement from our 1-3 SPs, and consider Andy an upgrade over Garcia. Hughes in the 5th starter spot isn't that bad.

    My hope is that the Angels never put it together and shop Haren.

    Why not dream big and hope the Phillies stay sub - .500 also and that Hamels becomes available?

    I said a long time ago that that could happen.

    It took longer than I expected, but a lot of the things I saw as possibilities have come to fruition. If the Phillies don't think they can resign Hamels, of course they will try to trade him.

    Anyway, I never said it was likely, but still think it could happen.

    Maybe a bit unrelated, but I'm curious if the Angels would have any interest in D-Rob (I love him, but I'm almost positive he could bring back more value than he's actually worth) or Soriano.

    If not Oswalt, i think we all agree we need to shop for somebody come all star weekend. And the way i see it, by that time andy will take freddy out of the lineup, and whoever else we could acquire would send phil to the pen, giving us a solid 5 for the second half of the season. Until then i'm comfortable with the rotation, granted andy gives us basically what we expect from him.

    I think it could happen, but I think it's more likely they rebound, and I think the Phillies are playing for now -- so my guess is that they'd be more likely to keep Hamels if they are competitive. But we'll have to see what the season brings.

    Funny -- I was wondering the same exact thing about D-Rob. It would take more than just him, but you'd think he has to appeal to them.

    And this is why we're all grateful that you're not the GM.

    I must have missed the meeting where the other forumers nominated you as their collective proxy, bit I think you'll find I'm not alone in being open to trading D-Rob at the height of his value, especially when back-end relievers are consistently overvalued. In fact, look at the post directly above yours


    Not patting myself on the back for thinking that the Phillies had a bunch of $$ locked up in some injury-prone players. I'm just hoping that leads to Hamels being shopped...but I'm not expecting it to.
