Mets interested in Roy OswaltJanuary, 26, 2013JAN 262:02PM ETBy Adam Rubin | ESPNNewYork.com
5.80The Mets have showed interested in free-agent right-hander Roy Oswalt, and the door has not fully closed even with the addition of Shaun Marcum to round out the projected rotation, a baseball source told ESPNNewYork.com.
Oswalt, 35, went 4-3 with a 5.80 ERA in 17 appearances (nine starts) in 2012 with the Texas Rangers. He made his season debut June 22 -- less than four weeks after signing with the club on a minor league deal.
Oswalt worked entirely in relief last September. He made only 23 starts in 2011 because of lower-back inflammation.
Yeah they were also interested in every other known name this offseason. Sizemore, Upton, Wilson, Pavano, Liriano, Bourn, etc. etc.
Roy Oswalt's agent, Bob Garber: "I'm not aware of any interest" from the Mets.
tweet from Marc Carig, Newsday
always suspect of Rubin.ESPN sources
>>>"And now comes word directly from Oswalt's agent via Marc Carig on Twitter: "I'm not aware of any interest". Guess it's not serious interest just yet."<<<
Not sure the Mets have shown any interest or not, but whether they did or didn't, this would be far from the first agent to claim ignorance about his client's suitors. lol
And his agent says he has had no contact with the Mets.....
Another Adam Rooombin exclusive.
