Teams feel like Roy Oswalt “doesn’t want it bad enough”
Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe hears that Roy Oswalt “may still want to pitch, but, again, on his terms and perhaps for only a half a season.” He adds:
Sounds about right. In addition to not pitching very well last season -- Oswalt posted a 5.80 ERA over 59 innings for the Rangers -- he was not at all happy when Ron Washington moved him to the bullpen.
One can never know what truly lurks in the hearts of men, but there seems to lack a sense of self-awareness in Oswalt. Dude must think he’s still some ace-for-hire as opposed to, well, what he is.
