Apparently Roy Oswalt would accept a trade to the Nats. The Nats came out a while ago saying they would be interested and now with Oswalt saying he would accept the trade it kind of is just a matter of the two teams working out the deal.
It would be really good for the Nats so that Strasburgh isn't thrusted into the pressure of being an ace out the gate and he has someone to kind of mentor him as he develops. Also gives them an innings eater to keep their bullpen from getting over worked.
The reason I say the NL East could become very tight is that the Nationals are also getting Wang, Zimmerman and prob Marquis back sometime around or right after the ASB so if they can hang on another month they could challenge in the NL East and the Wild Card probably with that rotation because their Offense is already pretty solid.
The Phillies are of course a good team and will be making moves soon to solidify the end of that Bullpen.
The Marlins are never a team to count out and could be promoting Stanton soon who could give the offense a nice boost.
The Mets could be benefiting from the return of Beltran pretty soon and with Reyes and Wright heating up and Bay coming along nicely their offense will be pretty good as well. The only problem is their rotation. If Takahashi can become a solid starter then they could threaten as well just because of their offense.
Im actually excited for the competition. Not a fan of one team dominating.
