    morgan ensberg and adam everett for tejada. luckily, peter angelos nixed the deal. now the mets are after oswalt or jason schmidt.

    It was going to be a blockbuster – Orioles shortstop Miguel Tejada for Astros right-hander Roy Oswalt, shortstop Adam Everett and a third player.

    The Astros believed that such a deal was close Friday night, but barring a last-minute shift, Oswalt won't be going anywhere, and Tejada might not be, either.

    The Rangers continue to pursue Tejada, according to a major-league official, but the Astros and Angels no longer are engaging in active discussions with the Orioles.

    The Astros, major-league sources say, are steamed that Orioles owner Peter Angelos apparently quashed the original Oswalt-Tejada deal as well as several revised proposals.

    But there may have been another issue.

    The Astros, one major-league executive says, feared that the Orioles would flip Oswalt, their most prized acquisition for Tejada, to Houston's cross-state rival, the Texas Rangers.

    A National League executive disputes that theory, saying the Astros "knew all along" that the Orioles were trying to flip Oswalt. The executive says that the Orioles indiscreetly shopped all of the players they were offered to other clubs, calling it "no way to do business."

    Braves are dangling Andruw Jones to the Sox.

    Andruw for CoCo Crisp, Lester, and tons of prospects.

    Imagine Manny, Papi, then Andruw in a lineup

    Imagine Damon, Jeter, ARod, Giambi, Abreu, Sheffield, Matsui, Posada, and Cano. That lineup will be scary once Sheffield and Matsui are back.

    Roy Oswalt told the Houston Chronicle he would waive his no-trade clause if a move would be better for the Astros' future.
    Oswalt is due $58 million from 2008-2011, and his contract includes a $16 million option for 2012 with a $2 million buyout. The Mets are believed to be the team most interested in making a push for Oswalt's services, but the Red Sox and Yankees would surely love to have him, too.

    I can only imagine the screwjob that Purpura's got in mind. Actually, I can't imagine it. Considering what he got in the Rockies deal, he'd probably trade Roy O outright for Melkie Cabrera.
