    I swear, someone decided this winter that we’re going to talk about Roy Oswalt like he’s a 17 year-old girl in the 1950s.  First people were “eyeing” him.  Now Gerry Fraley of the Dallas Morning News reports that the Rangers have “made inquiries.” Gee, I hope they talk to Roy’s father first and declare their intentions.…

    Two weeks ago it was reported that Roy Oswalt wanted a three-year deal. Crickets.  Now Jerry Crasnick says that Oswalt is seeking a one-year deal.  And as many as six teams are interested, he says. No surprise there. Teams are probably concerned about a long term commitment to a guy who had back trouble last…

    Yesterday the Rangers met with C.J. Wilson‘s agent, Bob Garber, who described the get-together as “great” and said he was “pleasantly surprised” by how things went. That presumably means the Rangers made a strong push to re-sign Wilson, but Garber declined to tell Richard Durrett of ESPN Dallas if an actual offer was made and…

    Bill Ladson of MLB.com hears that Roy Oswalt is looking for a three-year contract. And after Bruce Chen, Chris Capuano and Aaron Harang have all received two-year deals this offseason, some team might be willing to go there. Of course, the major concern with Oswalt is his degenerative back condition. While the 34-year-old right-hander had…

    Silly season is in full effect. Just hours after it was reported and quickly denied that C.J.

    Juan Uribe surprisingly didn’t put up much of a fight in the bottom of the ninth inning when home plate umpire Wally Bell ruled that the 1-1 pitch from Roy Oswalt hit his bat handle and not his hand. Instead of taking his base Uribe just waited a couple pitches and hit the game-winning sacrifice…

    With Roy Halladay, Roy Oswalt, and Cole Hamels leading the way, it is easy to label the Philadelphia Phillies favorites to reach – and even win — the World Series.
