Jon Heyman's afternoon update

Now we get an update from Jon Heyman:

The Phillies and Dodgers appear to be the most active pursuers of star Astros pitcher Roy Oswalt right now. But teams are still complaining about the asking price. The Astros aren't happy with Oswalt's representatives wanting an option year picked up for $16 million. The Cardinals and Rangers appear to be on the periphery at this point.

And on Berkman:
A couple teams have shown interest in Astros first baseman Lance Berkman. But again, there are complaints about the asking price. "Drayton wants the moon," said one competing GM.
