It needs to be 91-93. The more important part is the 'movement','life', etc. on his fastball. The hitters on the Cardinals LOVE first pitch fastballs as we've seen, and they're going to be extremely aggressive the first time through the order. Having some of that late movement is going to be extremely important for Oswalt. Then his offspeed pitches can give them fits as well.
