Roy had a little exchange with Alyson Footer about his situation:
Oswalt says '12 option won't be deal breaker if approached with a trade offer that suits him. "I'm going to find a way to get it done. I'm not going to go somewhere where it's going to be bad for me. And I don't want to put the Astros in a bad situation."
Footer sums it up:
This isn't rocket science. Desirable team = no option requirement. Undesirable team = option requirement.
I'll let y'all take it from here with the "putting the Astros in a bad situation" quote.
