    Re: Diamondbacks have no plans to bring back Webb

    I know Webb is from the area and likes Cincy, but I just don't see a good fit at all. I don't see him accepting a minor league contract here, and pitching in Louisville, basically hoping that one of our young kids falters.

    There's so many teams that would be willing to give him that 3-6 million guaranteed and guarantee him a slot in the rotation.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    Why would Webb come out and say he'd take a minor league deal? It's a bargaining position.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Well, the difference between the high 80's and the low 80's is HOF Hoffman and Gopher Ball Hoffman.

    Re: Diamondbacks have no plans to bring back Webb

    I'd take Webb and give him a major league roster spot (after the Rule V), but it would have to be an incentive-laden deal, in the hopes of striking gold. There's little to lose other than that spot and the Reds have a few of them available.

    If he's bad in Spring Training, you can cut him. If he's good, you've got a nice chip so that others can be dealt.

    Nothing wrong with an incentive based deal if the team handles it wisely.

    From Jerry Crasnick:

    There's also an unidentified NL Central team that's trying to make a late run at Webb.

    I think I read somewhere the Cubs were after him. But if it's not the Cubs, it's probably the Cardinals.

    I would love to see the Reds make a run at Webb. But me thinks the Cards may be the unidentified NL Central team.

    I hope it's the Reds. More or less a hometown kid fighting for his career.

    If they add Webb and he ends up being healthy I'd start being a bit worried.

    From Jayson Stark:

    #Cubs & #Nationals are out on Brandon Webb, sources say. So Webb is down to 2 teams - #Rangers & NL Central "mystery team."

    I hope it's not the Cardinals.

    Re: Diamondbacks have no plans to bring back Webb

    I hope the Reds are in on Webb. Would take some pressure off the younger pitchers and add depth. Plus a pitcher could be included in a deal to bring in a SS like Reyes.

    Have to sign Webb to an incentive laden contract with 2 option years though. I wonder if that's the hang-up. No agent is going to let him go for more than 1 year in case he pitches lights out.
    Sabermetrics can be boiled down to this simple truism: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.
