On the replays, you couldn't really see him injure anything after throwing the gopher ball pitch, but the trainer and Williams came right out and took him out of the game. He was walking off gingerly which would seem to indicate it was his groin, but impossible to tell for sure. Apparently, however, Williams had already alerted the umpire before that inning that he might have to pull him and Munro was already warmed up.

Oswalt looked way off the whole game. He was constantly getting into jams, and his fastball was topping off in the mid to high 80's so something is definitely wrong with him.

I'm not sure if anyone else saw it the same way, but the last time he hurt his groin (at the start of the no-hitter against the Yankees), he didn't look bad at all walking off the mound, and he went on the DL anyway. This doesn't bode well.

Also, I'm not sure if this matters, but they have said before that his injury is not a tear in the groin, but a tear in the sheath in which the groin muscle is encased. So, maybe he doesn't limp as much since the muscle itself is not damaged - that still doesn't lessen the pain though.

So does he get injured every time he throws a nationally televised game? First ESPN and now TBS. He if starts against the Cubs on WGN I say bench his ass......you'll only get 2 innings out of him

LOL King Tim :-D

This is the latest on Oswalt, I don't think anybody knows anything newer than this yet:
I bet they'll give a statement on how long he's out later on or so....
