    Astros acquire Brett Wallce

    I know it should go into the Oswalt trade thread but thought It might need it's own. Move if you need to. Astros traded newly acqured Anthony Gose (Oswalt trade) to Toronto for First baseman Brett Wallace from Toronto. Wanted Wallace because he is close to MLB ready.

    He hasn't played the outfield since 2007, he ain't coming here.

    Anyone have a clue what Toronto is thinking here? A MLB ready .868 OPS replacement for EE or Overbay (Wallace), versus a .710 OPS youngster in Goce?

    The Wallace trade baffles me as well as Matt Capps for Wilson Ramos. I can't imagine that was the best the Twins could do
