It's truly amazing that the Reds have built up so much quality pitching depth (most of it young) that they weren't even willing to give Brandon Webb more than $3 million/year. I love it. Could you imagine something like this a few years ago? Obviously Webb is coming off injury and that's why he's on the cheap. My point is that a very short time ago, the Reds would've been all over this. Especially with him being a local product.
Now? It's kind of like "We'll kick the tires, but we've already got a garage full of nice cars."
I'd say the chances of him becoming a TOR starter again are about the same as you would have of winning the Powerball...
while being hit by lightning...
during an eclipse.
Its a fools bet IMO.

Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
Webb likely done for the year.
