Oswalt wants out, but Mets seem unlikely

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?
