Roy Oswalt says he has a "small window" to win

reporters on Saturday, one day after it was revealed that his agent
Bob Garber informed Astros owner Drayton McLane of his request for a trade (via
Bernardo
Fallas of the Houston Chronicle
).

“I don’t want
people
to think I’m leaving because we’re not doing well,” Oswalt said
Saturday. “I have a small window (to return to the playoffs).”

Oswalt, 32, has two guaranteed years remaining on his contract. The veteran right-hander hasn’t been to the playoffs since 2005, when the Astros lost to the White Sox in the World Series. Though he has shifted his focus to joining an “immediate contender,” Oswalt said that he would consider coming back to Houston
to finish his career.

“I told (Astros
owner) Drayton (McLane) I’d love to come back and finish my career,”
Oswalt said. “I’d play another year just to do that.”

It’s one thing to read these quotes, but I recommend you watch this video posted by Alyson Footer, the Astros’ senior director of social media. Oswalt isn’t big on being the center of attention, but his reasoning sounds pretty straightforward and honest. Let’s hope Oswalt’s friend Drayton McLane does him and his team a favor by sending him to a contender and netting a few promising prospects in return.
