Anyone with Oswalt news? predictions?

Postby MadMobius » Thu Jun 24, 2004 2:32 pm

What's Oswalt's status with that rib muscle thing? Any predictions on how he might fair the rest of the way?

Also, is he still better than C Zambrano or what?

One of the reasons he's struggling is probably because Raul Chavez (his personal catcher) is crap. He can't place the ball well, he can't hit. He's probably one of the worst catchers in the league. Ausmus is probably one of the smartest catchers in the league and could catch balls without much movement. Why don't the astros let Ausmus catch a few times for Oswalt.

Perhaps that's why Oswalt is struggling this year.

That's an interesting point. I never noticed anyone but Ausmus catching for the 'Stros.

rotoworld said he was a lot better the other night and that his ribs appear to be on the mend. I think he'll be better with each start

Until the next nagging injury comes and he becomes ineffective again.
