The Boston Red Sox are presently 21-21, hanging out at the bottom of the AL East. They've scored the second-most runs in baseball, but they've also allowed the third-most runs in baseball, and Clay Buchholz looks like a big ol' pile of crap. The Red Sox recently watched free agent Roy Oswalt work out. Stands to reason the two sides might've talked contract, yes?
Red Sox and Roy Oswalt have still not discussed a contract according to a major league source.— Nick Cafardo (@nickcafardo) May 22, 2012
Here's what this means: not a lot. If it's true, it doesn't mean the Red Sox and Oswalt won't talk contract; it just means they haven't talked contract, yet. And maybe Oswalt isn't ready to talk contract. Or maybe the Red Sox want to give things a little longer with their current roster. Roy Oswalt might still join the Red Sox, and we won't know until Oswalt makes some kind of decision.
For the time being, Oswalt's still out there, open to being signed, and preferably by a team going somewhere. If recent rumors are to be believed, Oswalt should settle on a team before too much more time passes.
