Roy Oswalt got shelled last night

The Rangers could use Roy Oswalt now. Yesterday even. He just can’t pitch like he did yesterday: dude gave up five runs on six hits over four innings¬†including a grand slam by Royals’ prospect Wil Myers in the Round Rock-Omaha game.

Here’s video of the Myers grand slam. To be fair, Myers is gonna do that against everyone. He’s hitting .324/.375./.793 at Omaha and is gonna be a friggin’ beast.

    Any takers on Francouer before the trade deadline?

      No.

        But he’s such a nice guy…

      Since Lorrenzo Cain can’t stay healthy and current CF Jerrod Dyson is…. not Wil Myers, don’t look for Frenchy to be moved anytime soon.

    Oswalt trying new stuff prob, treating it like camp.

      Thought you couldn’t teach an old dog new tricks?

    I have a feeling that the Storm Chaser could win a series against the Royals at this point, but it would have to be at the K. If it were at Omaha then the Royals would probably sweep them.

    Didn’t Andy Pettitte get shelled in all of his extended spring training starts? Craig, I expect a good reporter like you to mention a little factoid like that. Like billymc75 said, a veteran like Oswalt was probably trying out all his pitches to see what still works and what doesn’t. Let’s make judgements after his first major league game please.
