Phillies Notes: Oswalt, Blanton, Wade, Rollins, Pierre

Could the Phillies land Roy Oswalt? Jayson Stark is saying the team called around to gauge interest in Joe Blanton to clear payroll space for Oswalt, but Stark notes a deal isn't likely after speaking with Phillies GM Ruben Amaro, Jr.

Other notes around the Phillies include a Q&A with Ed Wade and Jimmy Rollins and Juan Pierre contract specifics:

  • Twitter / @jaysonst - "Phillies have called around to see if it's possible to move Joe Blanton to open payroll space for Roy Oswalt. Phillies GM Ruben Amaro Jr. on whether he saw any move out there that would free $ to sign Oswalt: "I don't see how that's possible." Amaro admitted Phillies have had "dialogue" with Oswalt but said fitting him now isn't feasible."

    Ed Wade joined Jim Salisbury on the set of Phillies Hot Stove and talked, among other things, about his trades with the Phils while he was in Houston.
