So Roy Oswalt took out a full-page ad in the Chronicle today, here's the text:
Since joining the Astros in 2001, the city of Houston has been a special place to me and my family. The overwhelming support I have received from Astros fans has been unbelievable. I will never forget how the city rallied around our team, especially during our amazing run to the World Series in 2005.
I will cherish my memories in Houston for a lifetime and am blessed to have grown up with the Houston Astros family.
I want to personally thank all of the loyal Astros fans, Drayton McLane, and the entire Houston Astros organization.
Please know that Houston will always hold a special place in my heart.
