Oswalt leaves Phillies to deal with storms in Mississippi

Roy Oswalt left the Phillies immediately following his start yesterday against the Diamondbacks. According to the team, Oswalt left the team due to "personal reasons" and they did not say when they expected him back. While many on Twitter wildly speculated that Oswalt had injury issues or some marriage problems, the Phillies have cleared things up by releasing another statement: Oswalt left the team out of concern for his family and his home after the recent storms in Mississippi. Phillies GM Ruben Amaro also thinks he could be back for his next start.

Hopefully things are okay with Oswalt's family and he can make a quick return to the club. I won't even bother speculating how long he will be gone.
