One of these days, Justin Verlander won't be anything special. He'll be diluted Verlander, a pitcher who only hints at his former self, like Carlos Zambrano or Roy Oswalt these last couple years. It might happen when he's 40, but it'll happen. Show More Summary
Roy Oswalt was a prospect, then he was called up. He was good immediately, and he was good for a very long time. He had some injury problems, and then he wasn't the same. The end. That's how the Roy Oswalt story looked like it was going to go. Show More Summary

Sunday, the recently demoted-to-the-bullpen Roy Oswalt pitched two innings of relief. He pitched brilliantly, too. But with the score tied 6-6 after eight innings, manager Ron Washington asked Oswalt for a third inning. Oswalt declined...Show More Summary
