2006 Cy Young winner Brandon Webb, has signed a one year deal with the Texas Rangers pending a physical. The Cubs were rumoured to be in the hunt for Webb along with the Washington Nationals and Cincinatti Reds.
It makes sense for Brandon Webb to sign with the Rangers since Cliff Lee signed with the Phillies sending the Rangers into panic mode. However, signing a pitcher who hasn’t played in over a year is sort of odd for the Rangers.
The good news for the Cubs is that Matt Garza is still in the mix. Garza will make close to 6 million this season and although it is pricey, I’d love to see Garza in the rotation come Opening Day.
