Three Prospects For Oswalt?

New York Baseball Digest is floating the idea that the Houston Astros are asking the Mets for three top prospects in return for starting pitcher Roy Oswalt

I think it is obvious that starting pitching is a need for the Mets. Oswalt would be owed $16 million in 2011, plus whatever is left on his $16 million salary this season. That's a lot to swallow, plus having to give up three prospects.

If I was Omar Minaya, the Mets GM, I might pass on that one.
