Oswalt close to signing with Cardinals

As was reported on Thursday, Roy Oswalt had little interest in joining the Red Sox.

Now, according to Jim Duquette of MLB Network Radio, he is close to signing with the Cardinals. Jon Heyman reported that Oswalt also turned down the Tigers. He seems determined to avoid the rigors of the American League.

For the Red Sox, their best options appear to be signing free agent Edwin Jackson or working a trade with the White Sox for Gavin Floyd.
