Oswalt?

Anybody thought of bringing back Roy Oswalt for the rotation as one of our FA signings? Just asking out of curiosity and to see if anybody has heard anything about him as far as injuries and what is going on with him.

I am not saying they SHOULD sign him, would just like to kick the tires as an idea. Here are some possible reasons. 1) He should be cheap and short term, 2) Could be that veteran guy for our young staff, 3) Could help generate a little buzz with fans, 4) Could be a decent player. He had a terrible ERA last year with the Rockies, but his BABIP was .442, FIP was 3.08 and xFIP was 3.39 with a K/9 of 9.46 in a very small sample size. Fangraphs has his 2014 projection with a FIP of 3.86. 5) He can get those few extra wins to stake his claim as winningest Astro of all time.

With a cheap contract like that, they could allocate remaining resources to other areas like the BP.
