..................I would say an outstanding pick up for the Rangers.........
"Leadership is wisdom, courage and great carelessness of self"
Great pickup if he can get anywhere near his performance with the Astros.
More than any other team, I wish I could be a fly one the wall in that front office.
Story up............SI confirming
The Texas Rangers have signed three-time All-Star pitcher Roy Oswalt to a minor-league contract, according to MLB.com. The move will mostly help the Rangers replace Neftali Feliz. Feliz went on the disabled list last week with a sprained right elbow.
Oswalt, 34, would need at least 2-4 weeks before he is ready to pitch in a game, according to the report. The Red Sox, Orioles, Phillies and Dodgers each showed interest in Oswalt over the past couple of months.
Oswalt went 9-10 with a 3.69 ERA last season with the Phillies. In 11 seasons with the Phillies and Houston Astros, Oswalt hasa a career record of 159-93 with a 3.21 ERA. He has won 20 games twice while with the Astros.
Rangers got a gamer who could really help out in the post season, IF he can stay healthy.
Roy's back has been a mess for 5+ years now, but maybe half a season off will help. Buy that man a tractor.
I think it's a good move. With the run support he'll be provided he's bound to improve his W-L record.
I love Roy O................for about 7 years I think he might have been the best pitcher in baseball.
