    Re: Cubs Considering Brandon Webb

    Don't know how I feel about this. They could be getting a steal because of his recent injury issues or they could be getting a complete dud. It's risky, but the Cubs need to do something.

    The Cubs are interested in an aging picture with questionable health? Shocking!!

    Re: Cubs Considering Brandon Webb

    The did a very similiar thing to get Dempster when he was coming off of a major injury in 2004 and that worked out pretty well. If they can get Webb for cheap, it's worth the risk.

    Re: Cubs Considering Brandon Webb

    Similar to what the A's did with Ben Sheets last year? That did not work out well...but it is worth a shot if you can sign him cheap. Just not for the $10 million the A's gave Sheets.

    If it's for low money, it's a low risk high reward deal.

    I like Fat Elvis at 1B though.

    For a pitcher who has already sat out most of two seasons due to injury? Yes.
