CBSSports.com's Jon Heyman had this interesting tidbit about Roy Oswalt's contract with the Texas Rangers.

The deal speaks to Oswalt's desire to win a World Series and to his affinity for Rangers president Nolan Ryan: Oswalt had better offers on the table from the Dodgers, Phillies and Cardinals, according to a source with knowledge of the talks.

Ouch. 

It looks like Dave Bush will have to do.
