The Roy Oswalt Mystery

Mkzp5c_medium

Right handed hurler Roy Oswalt will make his first start since September 9 tonight at Washington. With lots of hype, the big question on him has been what can this 35 year old bring to Colorado baseball. There are many things pointing to him being both a great pitcher for Colorado baseball, and being that mediocre pitcher at best for the Rockies. With a career 3.28 ERA, the three time all star obviously has had the stuff he needs in order to be exactly what the Rockies want him to be. Oswalt, who signed with the Rockies in May, has also made five great starts at Double-A Tulsa, posting a 2.16 ERA and 0.93 WHIP in 33 1/3 innings of work. But lets also look at the downfalls. As stated earlier, Oswalt is 35 going on 36 in two months, which isn't usually the greatest years for pitchers in their life time. Not only this but with Roy posting a 5.80 ERA last year, over 1.5 higher than ever in his career, you start to get the feeling that he might be loosing it. There's so much info pointing to Oswalt becoming that great pitcher we'd love him to be and other information predicting he's going to be another hard to watch Coors Field pitcher. With not one obvious side, I guess we'll just have to watch and find out. I know I sure am excited.
