Roy Oswalt, Lance Berkman retire as Houston Astros

There are some franchises that just do it the right way.  The Houston Astros are, believe it or not, one of those franchises. First, during their home opener, they set the tone for what’s going to be a long season of Derek Jeter celebrations by giving the retiring shortstop some parting gifts.  And while I don’t ever see the New York Yankees captain ever wearing a cowboy hat...

Oswalt visits Astros camp

Recently retired Astros pitcher Roy Oswalt wasn't tempted to rethink his retirement when he dropped by Houston's camp on Thursday. He was, however, reminded by Roger Clemens that retirement doesn't necessarily mean the end of a career. Oswalt joked: ''Roger came in and told me anyone can retire once, so he may be challenging me.

Roy Oswalt retires, ending his career far too soon

On Tuesday, long-time Houston Astros starting pitcher Roy Oswalt retired at the age of just 36.

Phillies Phive: Spring Training is Here

The news of Roy Oswalt retiring yesterday brought back many memories of the good times of Phillies baseball. R2C2, the Pistachio Girl, when the stadium was sold-out every night no matter who they were playing, or even when the team didn't need to sell 50/50 raffle tickets to draw fans...

Looking Back: How Good Was Roy Oswalt?

For an entire decade, Roy Oswalt was synonymous with elite pitching.  Outside of his rookie season and the 2003 season, Oswalt proved healthy and started at least 30 games.  From 2001 until the 2010 MLB season, 7 pitchers started more games and only CC Sabathia & Roy Halladay won more games.  He only struck out 200 hitters in a season twice ('02, '04) but Roy Oswalt finished...

No Marshall, no problem; welcome Logan Boone

It was the perfect fit, one of those rare times the Colorado Rockies were going to catch the break they needed. And as quickly as the opportunity came it faded; Sean Marshall was gone.
