The Rangers are interested in Oswalt. Then they remember they're in bankruptcy court. And don't have a match in prospects.

Smilin' Ken Rosenthal has a fairly meaningless note (even more meaningless than normal this time of year) that the Rangers were still pursuing Roy, even after trading for Cliff Lee:

Imagine a Rangers rotation with both Cliff Lee and Roy Oswalt.

The Rangers did, revisiting their Oswalt discussions with the Astros even after acquiring Lee, according to major-league sources.

The talks went nowhere, with one source saying, “there is not a match at all.”
