Is this a Good or Bad thing ???

After waiting until spring training and failing to land a job to his satisfaction, free agent pitcher Roy Oswalt has told major league clubs that he might pull a Roger Clemens and return midseason, according to a baseball source.

Oswalt, 34, has told teams that he plans to keep throwing, stay ready and would be willing to return during the season if nothing materializes before then. That approach would mirror what Clemens did in 2006 and 2007, when he returned in June to pitch for the Houston Astros and then the New York Yankees.
Oswalt's agent, Bob Garber, has told media outlets that Oswalt is planning to make an announcement Thursday, but provided no further details. Garber didn't respond to phone calls or texts for this story.

Oswalt is 159-93 with three All-Star appearances in 11 seasons with Houston and the Philadelphia Phillies. The Boston Red Sox, St. Louis Cardinals and Texas Rangers are among the clubs that expressed interest in Oswalt this offseason, but weren't able to fit him into their budget or starting rotation.

This isn't quite as significant to when Clemens left his options open, because at 34 I don't think Oswalt is ready to retire as of yet. I'm surprised he hasn't signed on with teams who have shown interest, but clearly he is not worth the money he's demanded as with his days in Houston and Philadelphia.

Clemens could pull that off..............Oswalt cannot. You cannot even compare the two. I think this is a bad idea by him.

Maybe if Oswalt was on the juice like the Rocket, he could do the same.... but, agreed, think he should sign now as opposed to later.
I must be gettin' old... I still think baseball is cool.
