Daily Debate: Oswalt – Stay or Go?

Listen to today’s “Daily Debate” between Pat Gallen and Mike Gill of 973 ESPN FM in South Jersey. Today’s topic stems from last night’s wacky game: should the Phillies keep Roy Oswalt in 2012?

Oswalt is having a sneaky-good season, layered beneath missed starts, back issues, family concerns, and an odd start on Tuesday night against the Dodgers. His numbers (3-3, 3.05 ERA) suggest he’s doing just fine. His retreating velocity allows for lingering doubts.

Today, we look ahead – perhaps too far. Next season, Roy Oswalt has a mutual option for $16 million. That’s a lot of scratch at a time when the Phillies can barely scratch out a run.

The question is basic, yet complicated. Which side do you take? The one that says keep Roy Oswalt, the 4 Aces are too valuable. Or, the other that believes $16 million is better spent somewhere else?

Let us know who you side with on the issue by commenting below.
