Recently retired Astros pitcher Roy Oswalt wasn't tempted to rethink his retirement when he dropped by Houston's camp on Thursday.
He was, however, reminded by Roger Clemens that retirement doesn't necessarily mean the end of a career. Oswalt joked: "Roger came in and told me anyone can retire once, so he may be challenging me. I don't know."
Joking aside, the three-time All-Star who helped Houston to its only World Series appearance in 2005 is at peace with his decision to call it quits after a 13-year career.
He's working with agent Bob Garber and mentoring pitchers at Mississippi State. He says he could envision working with Houston's pitchers at spring training in the future. But for now he's content to spend more time with his family.
