Lots of scouts are watching Roy Oswalt

Jul 8, 2010, 4:13 PM EDT

Brian McTaggart of MLB.com tweets that scouts from the Dodgers, Phillies, Rays and
Mets are in Houston today to watch Roy Oswalt pitch against the Pirates.

Interesting, but at least two of those teams — the Dodgers and Mets — have been reported to be wary to take on payroll, and Oswalt = lots of money. The Rays — Cliff Lee rumors notwithstanding — probably need starting pitching less than they need offense, and it’s not like they’re so loaded that they’re likely to assume Oswalt’s salary, regardless of what their owner says in public.  The Phillies may be panicking a bit, so sure, I can see it, especially considering how much Ed Wade like to trade with the Phils.

    Hey Craig, what to the scouts say after Oswalt slaughtered the Bucs for nine innings of shut out ball? Does the fact that he beat a AAA club matter? Did the scouts also miss the rest of his stellar career and thus couldn’t figure out who this Oswalt guy was?

    Good day to go watch him, that’s for sure.
