Roy Oswalt Reportedly Turns Down Tigers

The Boston Red Sox want to add to their starting rotation. Over the weekend, the Red Sox basically gave Marco Scutaro and his salary away just to make room for a more expensive pitcher. The Red Sox have been said to be interested in Roy Oswalt. The Red Sox have been said to be planning an aggressive push for Roy Oswalt.

The Red Sox are probably going to sign Roy Oswalt. The Texas Rangers were in there at one point, but then they signed Yu Darvish, who already made their crockpot of starters overflow. And the Detroit Tigers were in there at one point, but if you believe this tweet from Danny Knobler, they've been eliminated from contention:

On Oswalt, I hear the Tigers were very interested (even had Verlander call him), but he didn't want to go to Detroit. May land in Boston.

Verlander: Hey
Oswalt:
Verlander:
Oswalt:
Verlander:
So, uh...
Oswalt:
Verlander:
Play for us?
Oswalt: ehh

Maybe the Rangers are still in the mix somehow. Maybe the Tigers aren't completely toast. Maybe there's a mystery team. But Oswalt's 34 years old, he's never won a World Series, and the Red Sox make just about perfect sense. It's gotta be the Red Sox. Right? Right?
