Roy Oswalt is not a sure bet for the Red Sox

When the Detroit Tigers have bowed out from the Roy Oswalt Sweepstakes (primarily because Oswalt did not want to play for them), the assumption has been that the Boston Red Sox and the St. Louis Cardinals (if they clear payroll) are the main suitors remaining.

However, Tom Singer from MLB.com reports that the Red Sox have also been talking to the Astros about Wandy Rodriguez. Add to this the reports that the Red Sox are talking with the other Sox about Gavin Floyd, and the assumption that Roy Oswalt will be in Boston, becomes a tad premature.
