Roy Oswalt UPDATE : Oswalt has agreed to go to Philly, and the Astros will receive J.A. Happ and two minor-leaguers. Click here for the full story .

All Roy Oswalt has to do is say OK and he'll be a Phillie, according to a report by Mark Berman of FOX 26 Sports in Houston .

Berman says the Astros and Phillies have agreed not only on the players involved, but also the amount of money involved in the deal.

Oswalt asked to be traded earlier this season, so it's assumed he'll waive his no-trade clause to join Philadelphia.

If Oswalt moves before his scheduled start against the Brewers on Friday, he will leave Texas one victory shy of tying Joe Niekro's record for victories as an Astro (144).

This season he is 6-12 with a 3.42 ERA. He is owed roughly $5 million for the rest of this season, plus $16 million next season. He also has a club option for $16 million in 2012 with a buyout of $2 million.

Earlier in the day, it was reported the Cardinals were out of the running for Oswalt and the Dodgers were unlikely to swing a deal.

I wanted Halladay and Lee as much as anyone, but everyone needs to stop blaming Amaro. I'm going to make this abundantly clear for every Philly fan who doesn't realize the truth.  If the Phillies had re-signed Lee, THERE WOULD HAVE BEEN NO HALLADAY.  The ONLY way the Phillies would have gotten Halladay would have been at midseason, in a deal similar to this.  If they WANTED both, they would have KEPT both.  Not to bash philsfan1 for posting this, this isn't against him.  This is against all those crybabies who keep whining and whining about the Cliff Lee trade.  The ONLY thing that Amaro did that was stupid was not making it abundantly clear to EVERY team that Lee was on the market.

So, aside from Happ, we're essentially giving up garbage and the Astros are eating $11 million of the $23 million owed to Oswalt over the next year and a half.  Very nice move by Amaro.  Maybe now all the Cliff Lee crybabies can shut their mouths.  I'll take consistant production for a longer period for less money any day of the week.  Who wants to see Halladay, Oswalt, and Hamels in the playoffs?  Nobody.
