Cafardo on Roy: Too picky?

This may be worthless seeing as how Roy has left the game in the 4th inning after taking a liner off the ankle, but Nick Cafardo mentions Roy in his Sunday column:

One major league source wonders whether Oswalt will get too picky about to which teams he would approve a trade...

...Would Oswalt, who is 70-22 in his career in the second half, approve going to the American League given some of the problems buddy Jake Peavy has had with the White Sox? One evaluator feels Oswalt would translate well in the AL. The reasons? “He pounds that four-seam fastball low in the zone and he has that looping curve that could freeze hitters. He’s obviously a great competitor who would get his juices flowing in a pennant race. For the year and a half he has left on the contract? I’d think he’d be fine."
