ROY OSWALT RUMORS & GOSSIP

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.

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. There will be no serious Hall of Fame discussion about Oswalt, and that's probably justified, but Oswalt's career looked like it was on a Hall of Fame track before it was derailed later on. Oswalt finished in the top five of NL Cy Young voting five times in the first six...

Oswalt under fire after passing on third inning of relief

Former Phillie and current Rangers pitcher Roy Oswalt got off to a really lousy start for the Rangers this year.  REALLY lousy.    He got six starts and had a 6.49 ERA.  Thanks to the big bats on the Rangers, he actually got three wins.  Clearly he had no business being in the starting rotation, so the Rangers sent Oswalt to the bullpen when they traded for Ryan Dempster....

Oswalt deal no guarantee for Rangers

OK, now that Hamlet -- er, Roy Oswalt -- finally has made a decision, how effective will he be for the Texas Rangers? How healthy is he? How quickly will he join the Rangers' rotation? How will he fare pitching in the American League for the first time? These are all fair questions, and the Rangers can't pretend to know all of the answers. Don't get me wrong; the...
