Re: Random Trade Thought w/ Arizona
You have the right type of target in Webb, but the wrong timing. Webb is signed to a favorable deal with his current team. Outside of a mega-market team with an excess of pitchers (yes, I'm pointing at you, Bronson) you aren't going to pry one of those guys away without gutting your team and farms system. The guy to get on the cheap is a 2nd or 3rd year arbitration eligible who has not quite lived up to expectations, but who has the stuff to translate into a plus pitcher. Think Ben Sheets winter of '04.
