The Mets need starting pitching and Roy Oswalt wants out of Houston and the last place Astros. But not so fast. General manager Ed Wade explained:  ``"Roy's contract has a no-trade clause, not a trade-me clause," Wade was quoted.  ``There is no rule that allows a player in his contract status to demand a trade. So demand, request, hold your breath until you turn blue, it's all the same. It's acknowledged and noted.''

And, Mets fans, why would Oswalt want to leave one last place team for another?
