Oswalt trade rumors hot, but so what?
For one, it's hardly a guarantee Oswalt gets moved, not with the financial commitments on his contract and what figures to be a hefty asking price from the Astros in return. Fantasy owners should never try to acquire a player -- especially a pitcher -- on the premise a real-life trade will so positively affect his statistics that it alters his value. Often that trade never comes. However, I feel like people are viewing Oswalt as a CC Sabathia- or Cliff Lee-type of top pitcher who puts up spectacular numbers following a trade. Now that I don't quite see.
To see why Eric thinks fantasy owners are overrating a potential Roy Oswalt trade, you must be an ESPN Insider.
