    Brandon Webb to audition for teams later this month

    http://www.cbssports.com/mlb/blog/ey...ter-this-month

    Title says it all. Could this be our diamond in the rough? After losing Dickey, an ace pitcher, if Webb could come in here and be at least half of what Dickey was I'd take him. We need a backend rotation guy and he solidifies this. If he were to come here and become a stud again, we could easily trade him before the deadline and maybe pickup another key prospect. Thoughts?

    I'd be all for it on the cheap, maybe even an option for next yr since this yr won't be much for us. But I'd assume Webb would wanna go to a contender. Maybe he just won't have many suitors though and will have to settle for a mediocre-bad team.

    On a minor league deal, sure.

    Dude was dominant but just couldn't stay on the field.

    Glad you 2 agree, it would be a steal for us if he could return to form.

    Absolutely. It all depends on the money though. He is the exact type of player SA would be looking for, but if he wants too much $, then he isn't coming here.

    He's done. He hasn't pitched since the Bush presidency. Just let him go.

    He's exactly the type SA would look at on a minor league deal. However, even in the best case scenario, I doubt anyone gets much more than 100 innings out of him this year.

    Dorothy: Yes, I guess you're right.

    I wonder if he'd compete for a bullpen spot. Love to sign him on a minor league deal.

    Just the kind of player SA is stockpiling, hoping to catch lighting in a bottle.

    too bad he hasn't stockpiled anything, unless you can't our treasure trove of aaron laffey and colin cowgill guys who will be sparkplugs
    This is just the beginning. Let's keep it up. History is bound to repeat itself. Let's hope that this time it's for the best.

    Imagine a few years ago met fans would be drooling over a rotation including Santana, Chris Young, and Webb.

    He's completely finished but I don't see how a minor league contract could hurt us.

    Might as well give Cy Young a shot, I think he might actually do better than Webb.
