There's the latest. Looking like it's inching closer to Happ, Singleton, Worley (?) and $11 million.

Jayson Stark is reporting Oswalt will OK the deal...he may just want to be first to report it, who knows?

Funny, Stark was the person saying this trade wasn't happening yesterday.

Verducci was saying it would.


Some people think that Amaro felt he needed to unload Lee on the same day as Halladay because it would be impossible to do so later (perhaps getting better prospects) once the Philadelphia media and fans latched on to the idea of having both aces on the same team.

I'll tell you that the misdirection didn't work on the fans and sports talk radio *gag* has been talking about Lee EVERY day since the trade happened. I know more about that trade and a guy who pitched for the Phillies for 3 months than I know about half my extended family.

Apparently that misdirection did work on some since some feel it was halladay or Lee

Gose instead of Singleton now, apparently.

The deal is done, tweets Rosenthal. Piecing this together, it appears the Astros send Oswalt and $11MM to the Phillies for Happ, Gose, and Villar, with the Phils potentially adding $1MM to Oswalt's buyout but not exercising his option.

Apprently, Singleton is not in the deal.
