Roy Oswalt will take a one-year deal

Two weeks ago it was reported that Roy Oswalt wanted a three-year deal. Crickets.  Now Jerry Crasnick says that Oswalt is seeking a one-year deal.  And as many as six teams are interested, he says.

No surprise there. Teams are probably concerned about a long term commitment to a guy who had back trouble last year but are more than cool to accept the high-reward possibilities of Oswalt on a one-year deal.  And for his part, he probably wants to show everyone his back is cool and then hit the market again after a great season. He hopes.

Can anyone not see the Yankees getting in on that? The Red Sox? A whole bunch of teams, really.
