Oswalt doesn't want to get traded to a team that's like the Astros

In McTaggart's follow-up piece on Oswalt's MLB Network interview where he said he'd waive his no-trade clause, it does come with a qualification:

Oh, yeah, there would be only certain teams that I would want to go to. I don't want to get traded and get put in the same situation that we're in right now. I would want to go to a contender that's a true contender, not someone that just kind of has a chance, a far chance to get there, you know, if every card was played right you'd make it. I would want to go to a contender. You know, I only have this year and next year on the contract so hopefully try to get a ring before that one's over."

That's so sweet, and diplomatic, and kind of him...
