I don't think its fair to say Brandon Webb will have the same turn in fortune, but I have no problem giving him a chance if the price is right. Who knows, he could turn out to be a big asset if a SP goes down and he gets back to 80% of the pitcher he once was.
Willis is the perfect comparison. I would definitely like to bring in Webb on a minor league deal and see if he can regain his form.
