Roy's One-Way Ticket: Philadelphia

Because keeping all of those quotes, notes, and rumors in one post is getting lengthy, let's break this down by team in separate posts. As these come in, they will be updated and reposted.


Latest status: Not interested.

Todd Zolecki (5/22):
There are indications the Phillies will not be in the hunt. They traded Cliff Lee for three prospects in the offseason, so it would be surprising to see Philadelphia then trade top prospects to get Oswalt.

PennLive (5/22):
Sure, a top of the rotation that featured Halladay, Oswalt and Cole Hamels — assuming all are healthy — would be tough to beat come playoff time, but there’s too much working against the Phillies in any potential deal for the right-hander...So dream if you want, but just don’t expect the Phillies to add Oswalt. Two Roys aren’t meant to be.
