Oswalt a Phillie by the weekend?
by Eric Schwartz
If Sports Illustrated’s Tom Verducci is right, the Phillies will have the best 1-2 punch in baseball by the weekend.
The veteran baseball writer appeared on the Dan Patrick Show today and said:
“I wouldn’t be shocked to see Oswalt pitching this weekend for Philadelphia,” Verducci said. Verducci said although it’s not Oswalt’s first choice, he wants to go to a contender. Verducci explained there are some money issues, but they should figure them out.

It’s hard to take too much stock in what Verducci is saying because it sounds more like a guess than a source of information, but this is something that would bring a smile to Phillies fans – even at the price of depleting the system a little more. With just four days until the trading deadline Oswalt is the hottest name left on the market and the Phillies have been mentioned with him for a couple of weeks now.
It should be fun seeing how this all unfolds.
