Shawn Chacon (6-3, 6.62) vs. Roy Oswalt (8-7, 3.34)

Shawn Chacon, the crown jewel of Dave Littlefield's stellar trade deadline transactions, will bring his incredible stuff to Houston for a showdown with the Astros tonight.

Unfortunately for Chacon, he will have to take on someone who is, well, good at baseball. Astros pitcher Roy Oswalt will make his 16th career start against the Bucos, a team which he has mericlessly punished throughout his career, in an attempt to edge the Astros closer to .500.
