lol i think any general manager in the world would give up Roy Oswalt for Lyle Overbay
Oswalt is a legitimate #1 ACE. Overbay is not much more then a solid First Basemen.
and HOU would not give up Oswalt for overbay, and im sure MIL would love to do it.
brew crew would part with lyle, he isnt that great.
Are you watching the same Lyle Overbay that the rest of us are watching? Because I don't pass off a guy with a 1.000+ OPS and a 0.71 K/BB ratio as "isn't that great." I think he is a great player, although he does not fit the traditional "masher" characteristic of an elite first baseman. He's also becoming a bigtime fan favorite, which would make it even harder to part with him.
However, I do agree that the 'Stros wouldn't/shouldn't part with Oswalt for Overbay/Spivey. Would you trade Oswalt for Richie Sexson? I wouldn't, and the D'Backs had to deal Overbay, Spivey, Chris Capuano, Jorge de la Rosa, Craig Counsell, and Chad Moeller just to get Richie. However, they would have to be at least somewhat intrigued by a package involving Prince Fielder, who could end up being one of the game's elite sluggers 5-10 years from now.
