No Lee…No Problem?

Most hard-core Twins fans should be about drowned in their soup over that news, as a Lee-Sabathia-Pettite rotation would be nearly unstoppable, but perhaps all is not yet lost.

A few weeks ago, Houston Astro Roy Oswalt announced his desire to be traded from the pathetic ‘Stros:

Just a few years ago, this guy was considered one of the top three pitchers in the National League, until injuries and pathetic team play dropped him down a notch.  He’s healthy now, though, and putting together a solid season on the mound.

I actually like his case better than Cliff Lee’s, because likely we wouldn’t have to give up BOTH Ramos and Hicks to obtain him, and we might even have a chance to sign him next year (he might not just be a rent-a-player).

So, if the Yanks do jump off the Cliff, perhaps we can still land a solid starter in his abscence.
