    Brandon Webb weaving his way towards history?

    Through 5 innings tonight, Brandon Webb has thrown shutout baseball vs. the Braves, to extend his scoreless innings streak to 38 innings. That is absolutely mind-boggling. Initially, I didn't think this guy had a shot at Orel's record. But who knows...

    He's thrown 8 scoreless now. Up to 41 innings.

    He's making this look like a video game. Actually, I don't even know if I could do this on a video game on beginner.

    I proposed a Dunn for Webb trade a couple years ago.

    I was mocked, ridiculed, and laughed at.

    That's a normal day here. I don't think your trade proposal had anything to do with it...

    If we had Webb he'd have torn his shoulder in 3 places.

    Probably because Arizona would have never ever done that trade.

    I believe his record is 59 consecutive scoreless innings.

    Brandon Webb is simply fantastic. Per THT, he's owns the fourth highest Ground Ball rate in the game (60.2&#37 and he's the only pitcher with a GB rate over 45% with a K/G rate over 8.0 (7.90 K/9 IP). The next closest comp with a K/G rate over 8.0 is Jake Peavy at 10.1 K/G (9.48 K/9) and a GB rate of 44.8%. The fact that Webb produces these kind of numbers while pitching half his games in a major offensive ballpark only highlights how good he actually is.

    Peavy is likely the frontrunner for the NL Cy Young, but Webb is a true historical gem playing in a much tougher park. But that being said, these are fantastic times when we can very easily watch both Webb and Peavy dominate on a consistent basis.

    The next two teams he's scheduled to face are the Brewers and the Padres. I don't know if he could handpick it any better than that, to be honest.

    Since this thread is on the Diamondbacks, I'm sure this is noted somewhere around here, but I just noticed today that they have the best record in the NL at 70-53 with a large deficit in runs scored/runs against. They have to be going for the "luckiest" ever record.

    The scary thing is, this is the time of the year when sinkerballing pitchers supposedly get better stuff as they begin to tire.
