Roy Oswalt announced a decision today.
Nah. He’s not taking his talents to South Beach.
Here’s what Roy’s agent had to say today:
“After much thought and careful consideration, Roy has decided to continue to evaluate his options,” Oswalt’s agent, Bob Garber, said in a statement Thursday. “He is in great health and will continue to stay in shape, while throwing regularly off the mound. Roy has every intention of pitching for a contending club at some point this season.”
Jake Westbrook and Kyle Lohse have to be a little relieved. … Or are they! Step up your game, guys! He’s still an option!
GM John Mozeliak does have faith in Lohse, Westbrook, Jaime Garcia, Adam Wainwright and Chris Carpenter as the rotation. Mozeliak told several media outlets earlier that despite efforts to sign the right hander, he never really believed they could bring in Oswalt. Sure! Uh-huh! … Here’s more on that!
