Is it just me or does Happ not really strike anyone as a headliner worthy player in a deal for a guy like Oswalt?

hes definitely not headlining material. hes a middle of the rotation type of pitcher and hes coming off of a fairly significant injury. i assumed singleton and cosart would also be a part of this deal but im ecstatic that they arent.

If he's healthy I think he's fine to headline the deal. He was awesome last year...check out the stats if you don't believe me.

Because they traded him in the deal in which they got Halladay... :-?



Not quite. It was two separate deals.

Halladay, Oswalt, Hamels is a devastating top 3 if they can get into the playoffs. 8-o
