Stark: Roy Oswalt to Rangers 'not gonna happen'
February, 10, 2012
With the start of baseball season unofficially beginning Saturday -- pitchers and catchers report for the Seattle Mariners -- the Baseball Tonight crew wants to know where some big-name players who have to sign with teams will wind up.
Among those players: Roy Oswalt, who has flirted with the Texas Rangers, St. Louis Cardinals, Boston Red Sox, Philadelphia Phillies and Cincinnati Reds.
Here's Jayson Stark's take:
"He wanted to go to Texas. That's not gonna happen. He wanted to go back to Philadelphia. That's not gonna happen. He had some interest in the Reds. That doesn't seem like it's going to happen. So his choices still come down to, I think, going to Boston, where they have a clear need but he doesn't seem to want to play, and going to St. Louis, where all his friends say he would love to be. But to do that, he has to do it on their terms."
