We haven't heard much from the Oswalt camp over the past week, as the market for the 34 year-old has evaporated. Much of this is his own doing, as Oswalt has (supposedly) restricted his potential landing spots to teams near his home in Mississippi like Texas and St. Louis. He's gone so far as to tell teams like the Indians not to bother, and now that the Cardinals are more or less set and the Rangers don't really have room for him (unless they move Uehara), he doesn't leave many options.
That's unless there's a mystery team, of course, or unless Oswalt has changed his mind about pitching with the Boston Red Sox. As Bowden says, we're sure to know soon enough.
