Roy Oswalt is a Phillie. I don’t know if you’ve heard.
The rumor about Jose Bautista coming to Philly, however, is pretty much dead. As cool as it would be to see the major league’s only 30-home-run-hitter relegated to bench duty in mid-September, the player the Blue Jays wanted was Anthony Gose, whom they acquired from the Astros for Brett Wallace shortly after the Phillies landed Oswalt.
If I was a betting man, I’d say that the Phillies are done deadline dealin’.
