Yep, word in Houston is the Astros are looking to deal a few players. They have come to grips with the fact that Lee is virtually untradeable without eating almost all the contract. Berkman and Oswalt have both been discussed according to the Houston Chronicle.
Here was a blurb on Berkman agreeing to waive his no-trade:
May 6 4:42 PM PT5:42 PM MT6:42 PM CT7:42 PM ET11:42 PM GMT7:42 AM 北京时间4:42 PM MST6:42 PM EST-Berkman would be open to waiving his no-trade clause if the Houston Astros asked him.
Analysis: The slugger, who first made the comments to the Houston Chronicle on Wednesday, reiterated those sentiments Thursday before a game against Arizona. One team said to be interested in his services could be the Chicago White Sox.
I really don't think the Astros trade him in the division though. The Reds would need to vastly overpay for that, and make it not worth it. Also, Berkman began to show signs of slowing last year, and it has continued down so far this year.
