    I'll guess St. Louis.

    My guess is retirement.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    I think he's the one missing piece the Astros need. I'm predicting a homecoming.

    Kidding! Man are the Astros going to be terrible this year. They're even worse than I thought after looking at their projected depth chart.

    Nah, I think you were right about him being the one missing piece. He is the key to Houston avoiding the all-time loss record.

    You guys just watch...they'll be going with tons and tons of kids. Just watch them play well.

    Sorry, I tried to type that with a straight face. :O)
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    Well, in all seriousness, it looks like the Cardinals. Dammit.

    This according to Cards beat writer Joe Strauss on Twitter:

    "Close friend of Oswalt said he "would not be surprised" if Roy accepted Cardinals' terms. #Developing"

    Are you kidding me? A "Close friend of Oswalt said he would not be surprised" ?? That settles it then. Even if it does happen....who cares? This guy is not someone to be feared with anymore due to his recent injury history.

    Despite losing Pujols, Cards will unfortunately have some nice pickups this offseason in Beltran and Oswalt. Damn
    Go BLUE!!!

    Heyman reports it's not Boston or Texas.

    Is he doing a show, ala LeBron, to announce his decision?

    Let it be St. Louis then. I do not fear Beltran or Oswalt..... and there is nothing we or the Reds can do about it anyways. The fear of those two along with the fear of what Theo Epstien is doing or might be doing.... is not something that I worry about. This Reds team should win 90 games....and make the playoffs.

    Too bad they do not have HGH testing at the end of every month of the season....beacuse Oswalt, Beltran and Berkman are probably going to need it.

    I think it's retirement as well. All his agent said was that there would be a announcement today-not that he'll be signing with anyone.

    Uh, where did I say that "settles it"? I said, quote, "Looks like the Cardinals." Not really a definitive statement. But when the Cardinals' beat writer has a source close to Oswalt saying he wouldn't be surprised if it happens, and Oswalt says he's going to announce today, that seems to all add up to him picking the Cards. Not 100 percent or even close, but the signs are sure pointing in that direction.

    Cards GM categorical that Oswalt will not be pitching for them

    Mo' insists Roy O "will not be pitching for the Cardinals." #Categorical
