    Any interest in Brandon Webb?

    What does everyone think of maybe bringing in Brandon Webb on a 1 year deal... maybe $2 Million with a ton of incentive money for innings pitched and performance?

    Could see us taking a gamble on Webb if we miss out on Lee and Pettitte retires. Don't see it if we get both of those guys, though.

    major shoulder problems + hasnt pitched in 2 years = eek

    i would give him $2mil guaranteed plus incentives, but im sure someone will overpay vastly

    Re: Any interest in Brandon Webb?

    only way I'd take him is on a minor league contract for depth. He hasn't pitched since 2008, how the hell do you give him a guaranteed contract.

    Thanks but no thanks, trade market is better incase we dont land Lee or Pettitte retires

    Wasn't Webb supposed to be back like 5 times last year but kept having setbacks? Not good.

    Re: Any interest in Brandon Webb?

    yes, at a favorable deal, but if we get lee and andy comes back there really isn't room in the rotation, especially with in-house replacement options like nova. if either of andy or lee doesn't work out then i'd be all for it, but i bet there are other teams willing to pay a little more at this point and would benefit more from the high risk/high reward than the yanks.

    Only if we don't get Lee or Andy. But should that happen Webb is probably one of the better backup plans particularly on a favorable incentive based deal.

    1 year, 1.5 million.... anything more than that is unnecessary.

    Webb is asking for the kind of money that Rich Harden / Ben Sheets got last winter.

    We'd be signing a more expensive version of Wang.

    I'm more interested in buying a time machine and get the Brandon Webb before his injury.

    Re: Any interest in Brandon Webb?

    Webb used to be good, but considering he hasn't pitched in a major league game in 2 years is a red flag. You'd obviously need to have him start a few games in AAA so if he isnt even opening day ready why consider? Where would you put him as a Lee plan B or as a Pettitte replacement?

    Said it once and I'll say it again, I'd sign him to a minor league split deal for depth anything else pass.
