PHILADELPHIA — Nolan Ryan once found himself on a game show with the legendary Satchel Paige. The two killed time talking baseball, and for Ryan it was another chapter in his hardball education. Paige asked Ryan at one point if he knew the best pitch in baseball, and the self-conscious Ryan didn't want to embarrass himself. He said he wasn't sure. "Bow tie," Paige told him. "I never heard of it, Satch," Ryan said. "What kind of pitch is that?" "That's when you throw a fastball right here," Paige answered, running his hand across his Adam's apple, and smiling wickedly.

Everyone wanted to hang out with John Waters this week. First the members of Future Islands spent time with the Baltimore filmmaker before they played at Hampdenfest Saturday.  Then Patton Oswalt invited him for a drink Sunday. The comedian posted this message on Twitter: "Hey John Waters: I'm at Salt on Pratt St. in Butcher's Hill. I'll be here for the next hour. Drop in, I'll buy you a Clear Eye Susan. " Waters likes to push boundaries in his work, but when it comes to social networking, he likes to do it the old-fashioned way -- in person.  But Rachel Whang, the co-owner of Atomic Books, spotted Oswalt's tweet and passed the message along to Waters.

With news that the Texas Rangers won the posting rights to Japanese right-hander Yu Darvish, speculation has arisen that the Rangers may not be able to afford free-agent first baseman Prince Fielder. If that's true, then the market for the last remaining free agent stud has shrunk -- and perhaps cracked open for a fringe suitor such as the Orioles. And at least one national writer has speculated that the Orioles are still in on the Fielder sweepstakes. My take: Nope, not yet. Probably not ever.

HOUSTON -- Roger Clemens brought the Houston Astros attention. Andy Pettitte brought them hope. Roy Oswalt is the one who brought them to the World Series. At times, Oswalt stood on that mound last night showing the aloof spirit of a little leaguer who didn't seem to notice the pressures and hopes orbiting around his slim frame like racecars. He didn't appear to break a sweat and chewed his gum like a cartoon character. You just knew after the White Sox jumped out to a 2-0 lead in this series that it would all come down to Oswalt and whatever he was able to do in last night's Game 3. The Series came to Houston and the Astros knew exactly what nine innings of baseball meant: If you can't win with Oswalt on the hill, you probably won't be splashing champagne on a World Series trophy.

In a potential blockbuster deal, the Orioles discussed sending All-Star shortstop Miguel Tejada to Houston for a package that would have included Astros ace Roy Oswalt before the pitcher was yanked out of trade talks last night. Several industry sources confirmed the Orioles and Astros were negotiating dealing Tejada for third baseman Morgan Ensberg, shortstop Adam Everett and Oswalt, 28, who has won 91 major league games. However, late last night, the Astros informed several clubs, including the Orioles, that Oswalt no longer was available in a trade, an industry source said.

Houston -- Roy Oswalt stumbled and fell on his rear right in the middle of the field. Then he got up, reached back and put the Houston Astros in control of their first-round playoff series. Not bad for a No. 3 starter. Oswalt pitched into the eighth inning, striking out seven of the next 12 batters after his awkward spill, and the Astros beat the Atlanta Braves, 7-3, last night to take a 2-1 lead in their best-of-five National League Division Series. Houston can advance to its second consecutive NL Championship Series with a victory at home today.

ST. LOUIS -- Roy Oswalt doesn't share the pinstriped past of Andy Pettitte and Roger Clemens. He doesn't own a World Series ring and, like the team he plays for, Oswalt has never been to the Fall Classic. But if the Houston Astros finally do make it there this October, they can thank Oswalt for his stellar performance last night in Game 2 of the National League Championship Series. Oswalt held the St. Louis Cardinals in check for seven innings, allowing only Albert Pujols' home run, and outlasted Mark Mulder in Houston's 4-1 victory at Busch Stadium.

SAN FRANCISCO — Five days after their initial encounter, Tim Lincecum and Roy Halladay will go at it again. This time, with even more at stake. Halladay will be pitching in Game 5 Thursday to extend the Phillies' postseason after the Giants' walk-off 6-5 victory Wednesday. Juan Uribe's ninth-inning sacrifice fly scored Aubrey Huff to give the Giants a 3-1 lead in the National League Championship Series. Huff reached on a one-out single and moved to third on Buster Posey's single, his fourth hit of the game.

PHILADELPHIA — Jimmy Rollins was in a rut. Calf and hamstring problems limited the former National League Most Valuable Player to 88 games in the regular season. He was 1-for-15 in the postseason. But the Giants got him started. Jonathan Sanchez helped him drive in his first run of the postseason by walking him with the bases loaded. Third baseman Mike Fontenot gifted him a hit by letting a popup plop onto in the infield. Then Rollins drove a down-the-middle fastball by Santiago Casilla to the top of the wall in right-center for a bases-clearing double that blew open the game and sent the Phillies on their way to a 6-1 victory on Sunday night in Game 2 of the NLCS.

The Houston Astros find it amusing. The roster of the defending National League champions barely has changed. Despite uncharacteristic struggles by three All-Star pitchers, the Astros are hanging above .500 and alive in the early playoff race. Yet everyone outside of the team is focusing on the guy who isn't there. Such is life in the crosshairs of the Roger Clemens big-game hunt. "I think we have been overshadowed since the end of the World Series," said Houston general manager Tim Purpura.
