Source: Mets Have No Chance At Roy Oswalt
This morning one of our readers commented about possibly making a trade for Roy Oswalt of the Astros. And although I totally disagreed with having to give up Mike Pelfrey for him, the thought of adding Oswalt seemed quite intriguing.

3. Mike Pelfrey
4. Oliver Perez
5. Jon Niese
Since then, WFAN has been abuzz with talk of Oswalt, but now I came across this post by Adam Rubin which seems to put a damper on the whole idea.
A source familiar with the Houston Astros’ thinking doesn’t believe right-hander Roy Oswalt will end up with the Mets, assuming he does get traded.
“They may sniff, but have no chance,” the source said regarding the Mets.
Oswalt, 32, has long been a topic of trade rumors involving the New York Mets going all the way back to 2006 and every trade deadline and offseason ever since.
He has a no-trade clause which might complicate matters as he’s never indicated any interest in playing for the Mets.
Oswalt is set to earn $15 million this season, $16 million next year and has a 2012 option with a $2 million buyout.
