PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – As the Phillies were losing, and Roy Halladay was struggling once again, most Phillies fans seemed to be at a loss for words.
But a former Phillies pitcher had a suggestion. Roy Oswalt would love to come back to the Phillies.
Oswalt took over the Twitter account for his official website, and said he hasn’t “felt this good since 2010,” and he would “love to come back to Philly, loved [his] time there, amazing fans.”
The timing seemed both apt and questionable, as the Phillies look like they are in need of a pitcher, but that may be at the expense of Oswalt’s former teammate Halladay.
Oswalt followed up on his comments Tuesday afternoon, when he said that Halladay’s struggles have nothing to do with his desire to pitch for the Phillies.
Oswalt went 4-3 in 17 starts with the Rangers in 2012, with an ERA of 5.80. He’s currently a free agent.
