08:13 AM ET 05.25 | Where or when will Roy Owalt pitch this season -- if anywhere? Two friends of [Oswalt] say they still believe his preference is to play in Texas, Atlanta or St. Louis. But since there's no indication the Braves or Cardinals are interested, his challenge is likely to be trying to convince the Rangers to pay him the significant dollars he's hoping for. ... Oswalt has been linked to the Phillies and Red Sox. But both of those teams are right up against the luxury-tax threshold. So they're highly unlikely to dangle the kind of dollars he's looking for. Meanwhile, one executive who speaks frequently with the Orioles' brass says: "Don't discount [reports on] Baltimore going after Oswalt.

All right, Mick. Let's save the negative comments for the Red Sox. ;)

Now that Feliz is on the shelf for a while and Feldman crapped in his pants in Seattle the other night he will be with the Rangers in the near future.

Hamilton has his babysitter. Oswalt can have a chiropractor.

I can agree with that...

I think Oswalt has something left in the tank - so - he'll be picked up when a couple more injuries occur.

Besides - if he's willing to accept less than what an established aging starter would normally get - I'm sure he would be signed even sooner.... (if he wants to play that badly)...

Morning Lou.

Morning Clem - wondering if you were going to stay at the dark side all morning... ;-)
