Gerry Fraley of the Dallas Morning News reports that the Rangers are going to meet with Roy Oswalt on Monday. There’s no offer on the table, but there is a meeting.

This, combined with the multiple denials from the Cardinals that they were, as previously reported, close to a deal with Oswalt, could suggest that Texas is making a move.  But then again, the Rangers met with Prince Fielder too, and see how that turned out.

So, my guess: Oswalt signs a $200 million deal with Detroit. Because that’s how this works, right?

    Since he has reportedly turned dow a 1 year contract with Detroit for $10 million and wants to pitch for a team that is close to his home, signing with either Texas or St. Louis for less than $10 million is just as likely as a 9 year $200 million contract.

    Didnt this team just file for bankruptcy less then 2 years ago? How are they able to spend this much cash?

      Um….new owners? You know…..guys that didn’t file for bankruptcy and that have a great new TV deal starting in a couple of years.

      Not a chance, he’s said he doesn’t like pitching there.

    Making World Series runs 2 years in a row doesn’t hurt merchandise sales either.

      I think merchandise sales (merchandise not sold in the store in the park of the team) is split evenly among all of MLB.

    I can’t imagine why the Rangers would want Oswalt. If they sign him, then most likely Harrison would be bumped to the pen. 26 year old Harrison had a better 2011 than 34 year old Oswalt, and he should get better with experience. I could be wrong, but Oswalt looks to be in decline.

    This can only mean one thing. Roy Oswalt is in the Best Shape Of His Life.
