Are the Astros done dealing?

Are the Astros done dealing? It’s likely, but you can rest assured general manager Ed Wade will be exploring many options up until Saturday’s 3 p.m. CT Trade Deadline. Lance Berkman said Thursday night the club had not approached him about a deal, and I’d be really surprised if he gets traded at some point soon.

It’s been reported Brett Myers is untouchable, but Jeff Keppinger‘s name has been thrown around in some rumors.

“We’ll stay actively engaged in conversations right up until 3 o’clock Saturday afternoon and beyond,” Wade said. “This is is a deadline where we can trade players without securing waivers. That doesn’t mean that every player gets claimed on waivers after the fact. We’ll try to get as many players as we can through the waiver system, and if opportunities present themselves btewen now and Saturday afternoon and thereafter, we’ll continue to work that and see where it leads.”

I think we got two good prospects in Happ and Wallace. I’m not sure about Villar. Overall the deal would have been OK if we hadn’t paid $11 millions on top of trading Oswalt. In the end it looksl ike we got the raw end of the bargain.
I guess we’ll have to wait and see how our prospects turn out. Isn’t Happ under team control until 2014?
