Source: Myers deal with Astros will be two-yr extension through 2012 with club option for '13. Option also will have vesting element.Ken Rosenthal via Twitter - take this with a grain of salt, but it is the first actual bit of news we've gotten on the extension. McTaggart just tweeted that Myers is looking for a third year as a guarantee. I think these two reports explain why there has been no news, officially, on the deal since 2:30 PM.
[Tal] Smith said he expects to make a deal because there is "considerable interest’’ in Oswalt, with "three or four’’ teams trying to make it happen. Smith felt by tomorrow things should begin to heat up.From Nick Cafardo's piece in this morning's Boston Globe- well worth the read.
