The Red Sox may still have a shot at Roy Oswalt

The Red Sox are on the outs with Edwin Jackson.  Roy Oswalt is sour on the Cardinals. It’s getting close to closing time. They see each other at the end of the bar, lock eyes and …

A Red Sox source confirmed Wednesday that the team had not abandoned hopes of signing Oswalt, indicating that the 34-year-old right-hander may have a better chance at a regular turn starting with Boston than with the other two clubs, both of whom appear to have filled their rotations.

That’s Gordon Edes, who entertainingly ads that the same source telling him this was the one who told him the other night that Oswalt was close to signing with St. Louis.  I bet Oswalt doesn’t even know what he believes right now.  Courtship can be so disorienting.

    In other news, Cur has a better shot at Minka.

        Ha! If it weren’t for that meddling Jeter. Dude’s got game.

        Hopefully for Minka, that’s all he has.

      Is that shot more like just a theoretical idea? Like they are both the same species and reside on the same planet?

      • Utley's Hair - Feb 1, 2012 at 9:41 PM

        Do you have proof of that similarity?

    And this just in, Roy Oswalt is in the best shape of his life.

    Maybe they could sign Oswalt, then flip him to the Rockies for Scutaro, you know, for salary relief.

    Well, there is all that beer going down in the club house…… C’mon Sox, you gonna feel like heck in the morning anyway, might as well have fun tonight..,this season LOL hahahaha

    having a rally beer may be what Oswalt would need to cheer up. malcontent.

    • Utley's Hair - Feb 1, 2012 at 8:15 PM

      Just because he wasn’t jumping around all goofy and grinning doesn’t mean he was a malcontent. Some people don’t have bubbly, sparkling personalities like you apparently demand of your team’s players. Sorry bout that, rj.

        Curses, you blasted smurfs and your evidence of his joviality!!!!!!

  7. Utley's Hair - Feb 1, 2012 at 6:53 PM

    Wait…no way…but he said he was only interested in St’ Louis and Texas!!!!!!! He can’t change his mind…can he?

    • bigxrob - Feb 1, 2012 at 7:29 PM

      He’s worse than a women

      • teaspoon1731 - Feb 1, 2012 at 8:55 PM

        Pish posh, a woman would just go to the team with the most money and call it good.

      • teaspoon1731 - Feb 1, 2012 at 8:57 PM

        Pish posh, a woman would just go to the team with the most money and call it good. Though she’d continue to pine over who she really wanted and would eventually force a trade…er break up.

    The Red Sox may have a shot at him, they don’t have a shot at him. They may have a shot at him, they don’t have a shot at him. They may have a shot at him, they don’t have a shot at him.

    Will someone please make up their mind. Will someone please sign this guy, all this speculation is making my head spin.
