Roy Oswalt has cleared waivers, which gives the Rangers leeway to trade him. Should they take a chance on their oft-injured veteran, or try to flip him for prospects?
mgarrison767: "No team is gonna give up the prospects the Rangers would demand to take on Oswalt. I doubt he is going anywhere this year - except maybe to the bench if his attitude doesn't change."
mikealioto: "If the Ranger are going to try to trade him by Aug 31st they are going to trade him National League team. Not to any contender they will half run into during the playoffs. On the American league of course "
texasluva: "I'm sorry but he can no longer get MLB players out on a consistent basis. Send him back to his farm and if he needs a couple of farm hands send Feldman to help him out."
easchner: "He's likely going to be in the long relief role, and will likely do very well there. There's only been a couple of games where he's let in more than 1 through his first 3-4 innings. Come playoffs, it's a very nice luxury to have a fifth starter you can put in games when someone breaks down early in a game (which will happen)."
lifer-for-life: "Not sure why the Rangers would consider keeping him around, he was a gamble that hasnt really paid off."
