Roy Oswalt has declined a chance to pitch in Detroit.
Rumors persist that he will come here, to play for a team that finished with a worse record in 2011 and failed to make the playoffs. He declined to pitch alongside the Cy Young award winner and MVP, who reportedly called to convince him.
I'm appalled. What's wrong with Detroit?
But, if he does come here, I reserve the right to praise his Red Sox spirit!
