Astros right-hander Roy Oswalt told the Houston Chronicle that the Yankees fit the criteria for the type of team he would like to be traded to, if the team decides to move him. Oswalt added that he would like the chance to pitch with former Astros left-hander Andy Pettitte again.
"I think it’d be great," Oswalt told the newspaper. "Me and Andy pitched together for three years and had a great time in Houston. We went to the World Series and missed it by a little bit, but he’s a great teammate, always picks you up. Seems like everywhere he goes he wins."
As for the Dodgers, another rumored suitor for Oswalt, the Los Angeles Times reported Oswalt’s big contract is a stumbling block for the team.
