    I'd think it'd have to be Harang to the pen, or traded. If they move Bills to the pen I'd flip.

    Too bad Oswalt doesn't want to play in LA. What a douche. We have the best record in the game.

    It is also said that the Dodgers balked at his asking price of a pro-rated $7.5M.

    And had no problem giving Harang 8 million and Lilly 11 million.

    Different ownership, but you'd think the new reign would be willing to spend more.

    @BillShaikin: #Dodgers have tried in past to get Oswalt, become convinced he has no interest in playing in L.A. As @JonHeymanCBS says, not involved.

    If he has a brain in his head, he would be looking to sign with us. We are the type of team willing to add an extension should things go well at year's end. Also, we are proving to more than a fluke.

    Not to a guy coming off a back injury... Theres no way they give that money to Oswald...

    Harang's money was to get him for 2 years... Their plan was probably to eat up part of the contract and trade him for 2013... Lilly's contract was stupid....

    I still don't get it...I don't care about Oswalt, fuck him always...but if he hates LA, why then, did he "work out for the Dodgers"? Whatever that means...

    Seems to me he may be more open to playing for the Dodgers that others think. Or he may look at the record and decide to play whether he likes the west coast or not. Or maybe he just wants to work out for any team. Who the hell knows?

    I'm not sure how you can give a guy shit for wanting to end his career where he'd be most comfortable.
