Red Sox like Oswalt, but does he like them?

The Red Sox like Roy Oswalt. But is the feeling mutual?

The Sox, sources say, have made a significant offer to the free-agent right-hander. Oswalt has yet to accept, raising some doubt about his interest in going to Boston.

Oswalt already told the Tigers he wasn't interested in going to Detroit, sources said, and even a recruiting phone call from Justin Verlander didn't sway him. While he may not have given the Red Sox as definite a "no," it is thought that he would prefer teams closer to his home state of Mississippi.

Oswalt has long shown interest in going to the Cardinals, but it's unclear how interested the Cardinals are in him. The Rangers had interest in him earlier in the winter, but they have since added Yu Darvish to their rotation. The Reds were also thought to be a team that Oswalt would like, but they traded for Mat Latos.

The 34-year-old Oswalt spent most of his career with the Astros, then accepted a trade to the Phillies at midseason 2010. He went 16-11 with a 2.96 ERA in 35 starts for the Phils.

The Red Sox would like to add another starting pitcher before spring training, but the options right now seem to be limited. Edwin Jackson is the only other significant free-agent starter on the market, and the Red Sox have talked to him, too. The Red Sox have also talked to the White Sox about Gavin Floyd, but were turned off by the asking price and it seems that a deal for him is unlikely.

Oswalt is a highly risky investment.  He isn't going to play for cheap, and any team signing him will have to endure the long periods he is on the DL with back problems.  At one time, Oswalt was a decent pitcher, but at 34 years old, he is going to recover slower and slower from his injuries.  One thing about hurting your back, it never goes away completely.  For all of the above reasons, I am hoping the Yankees sign him.

Oswalt ? That dude is done. And I mean done. done. Go for Edwin Jackson. He's like 28 and pitches a lot of innings without getting hurt like Oswalt does. What the hell is wrong with the red sox this offseason ?

Ok herad that but new jersey is not part of the city so you can add the islanders and mets but then you have to subtract the giants 3 superbowls since they actually did not even play , practice or have their head offices in the state of new york , which equals about the same. Haha still sad almost all the titles new yorkers brag about where won before most of our fathers and grandfathers Were Born. .. And Al capone was still big. Hahahahahaha

Big ROY needs to come aboard and produce. The REDSOX do not have time for a HYPED PROSPECT. ROY has some mileage still in that arm. He was up and down with the Phillies. He can be his own MAN in Boston. When you are the ROLE model pitcher in the rotation you lose yourself. In HOUSTON he had to be THE MAN. He was a MAN. He needs to find that desire. I think in BoSTON he will get some MOXIE back.
