What were fantasy baseball players offering him?

My apologies. I have a nephew named Anfernee, and I know how mad he gets when I call him Anthony. Almost as mad as I get when I think about the fact that my sister named him Anfernee.

Our hearts and never-ending affection...

He just ripped them out and tore them in half. Oswalt, you son of a gun, I thought you loved us!

I have a hunch you're getting Soriano if that makes you feel any better. If it makes you feel worse, sorry.
Let's go O's. Let's go Mets.

Declining K rate or not, he is still an ace.

6.45/9 is still very respectable. Especially when your K/BB is 4.23/1 this season.

I swear, people are looking for reasons to dislike this guy. If he were on a team with hitting, he'd have multiple Cy Young awards by now.
