Would Roy approve a trade?

He'd certainly think about it:

Oswalt hasn't ruled out waving his no-trade clause if owner Drayton McLane wants to get rid of him. Multiple baseball sources told the Chronicle earlier this month that the Astros had tried to put Oswalt through waivers to trade him.

With that said, it's doubtful the Astros would send him to the Braves, Cardinals or Cubs, three teams people close to him say he'd be willing to join.

“They ain't approached me yet on anything,” he said. “Would I consider going to somewhere else? I'd have to wait and see what they're proposing. I'll tell you that I wouldn't go to very many different places if I considered doing it. And the places I would go to they probably wouldn't want to send me anyway.”

Brocail threw a bullpen session yesterday, and is scheduled to throw a bullpen session during the current homestand in his attempt to rehab his 23rd injury this season.
