Roy won't oppose a trade to the East Coast

Realizing that we're just chasing ghosts here, there's a report from our trusty, albeit moderately silent local paper.

Bernardo Fallas:
The latest clarification came Monday, when he said he has no problem being traded to an East Coast team — provided it is right fit.

“That’s not an issue,” Oswalt told the Chronicle on Monday. “Like I’ve said from the beginning, it’s going to have to work for both of us.”

Roy also told McTaggart (or at least a group of people, of which McTaggart was a part):
"Location doesn't matter."

Roy needs to understand that, while the Phillies may be out of the race this year (although they certainly can't be counted out), they're set up pretty well for 2011.

Thought this little bit was interesting:

“We can work on doing different things as far as restructuring (the option),” Oswalt said.

Whether Oswalt is clarifying stances or making concessions to make himself more appealing to teams is open to interpretation.

This because, as Oswalt admits, he is not the one doing the dealing, and his agent, Bob Garber, is not one to engage the media."

To me, it still sounds as if he wants the option guaranteed, which is absurd at this point.
