if the astros are eating half the salary im good with it. (why i care about how much the phillies spend or dont spend is kind of odd. i guess its mostly because i feel i know the limitations on the total salary spent).
by no means was i saying i prefered happ over oswalt earlier in this thread. i was simply stating that if the astros didnt kick up any money in a deal, it would essentially be happ and 30 mil or oswalt. if im choosing between those two options, im going happ everytime, even though i feel hes a number 3 type at best.
and this trade doesnt really address having to start blanton, kendrick, and/or moyer which is kind of what i wanted the team to focus on (bullpen help would be my obvious number 1 answer).
im still waiting to see the official package.
