MLB Trade Rumors: Roy Oswalt to AL?

MLB - On Roy Halladay's perfect game and Buster Posey's imperfect call-up - ESPN:

"The three teams that might be the best fit on paper to get Oswalt: the Twins, the Tigers, the Angels. And the reason why the Tigers might make the most sense is that they're more willing than other teams to spend money -- and the question of how much other teams are willing to absorb Oswalt's remaining salary could be the deciding factor in any trade talks with Houston."

1st, I have serious doubts the Astros will trade Oswalt due to his marquee value as an Astro and that pesky no-trade clause and option for 2012. That said, I don't see the Angels as contenders given Kenry Morales' broken ankle the org's lack of an obvious replacement at 1B.
