Roy Oswalt is one of the last big name free agents left on the market in the MLB, and it seems like the St. Louis Cardinals are in pursuit of him...and it looks they're in the lead as well. Oswalt has said he wants to remain in the National League and going to the defending champions looks like a good destination.

It's reported that he could sign with the Cards soon, at least according to a "major league source" by ESPN.com. However, an agreement will only happen once a physical is there for Oswalt, as he has had some back problems in his career.

"It's not yet 100 percent," the source said.

Other teams that may reportedly have interest are the Boston Red Sox, Texas Rangers, and Colorado Rockies after Oswalt rejected an offer from the Detroit Tigers, who have recently signed Prince Fielder.

However, after being traded to the Philadelphia Phillies last season, Oswalt wants to remain in the National League, so the Red Sox don't seem like an option now, especially after his nine seasons in Houston.

I guess we'll see where he ends up, but it looks like that destination will probably be the Cardinals.
