hypothetical question

If the Astros had offered Oswalt to the Dodgers for a similar package as Philadelphia offered what would you have done?  Assuming speedy, projection outfielder; T Robinson instead of A. Gose and speedy, projection SS D Gordon instead of  J Villar; and a partially tested MLB SP (or combination) McDonald/Ely/? instead of Happ.

 

Could the Dodgers have wound up with Oswalt plus $11M?  I feel Gordon is much more valuable than Villar and Robinson is at least equal as a prospect to Gose.  Granted the pitcher would be a bit less valuable than Happ but maybe a combination of two pitchers could have been involved.  Of course we don't know what was actually offered but I feel this package was at least equal to what the Astros received.

 

Should the Dodgers have said yes if this was on the table?
