And now, we listen to our stomach turn with the sound of our Astros forefathers spinning in their graves

Sit down. Just...sit down. Everybody's fine. Don't worry. But there's something you need to know.

The St. Louis Cardinals are reportedly the front-runners for the services of Roy Oswalt.

Calcaterra, who is a reputable deliverer of news:
The Astros have been talking with Cardinals GM John Mozeliak for several days now, and Oswalt is quite amenable to go to St. Louis if the teams can agree on what players will head back to Houston...

...My source tells me, however, that Oswalt would be willing to work with the Cardinals to make the option more palatable, possibly in terms of deferring some money. The sides aren't quite that far yet.

Calcaterra later tweets:
As for player(s) back to HOU: there has been talk of Shelby Miller, but it's fluid. Deal is not imminent, but there has been a lot of talk.
