Chat: Chat with Jayson Stark - SportsNation - ESPN:
"J.B. (Dunmore, PA) Oswalt has mentioned the Braves as a team he's accept as his new employer. Is there any possible deal the Braves could work out that the Astros would accept and that would free up the salary budget necessary for the Braves to pull the trigger on a deal?
Jayson Stark (1:25 PM) I dealt with this topic in Rumblings and Grumblings, too. Talked to Frank Wren this week. And while he wouldn't discuss Oswalt specifically, or any specific deal, he said the Braves wouldn't be involved in any deal for a starting pitcher. He said they need to use their bullets on their areas of need, and those areas can be summed up in one word best I can tell: 'Offense.'"
