    Brandon Webb Retiring

    Former National League Cy Young winner Brandon Webb is retiring from baseball, agents Jonathan Maurer and Mike Montana of Millennium Sports told Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com (Twitter link). Webb, a three-time All-Star who last pitched at the MLB level in 2009, had been considering another comeback attempt.

    Not the biggest news but it's too bad we had to see a great ptichers' career come to an end in his prime.

    From top of the game, to out so quickly and easily.

    It's a shame.

    Very, very sad to see him retire. His potential was amazing just 5-6 years ago. I remember when he was one of the best pitchers in the game. Wish he could have stayed injury free.

    I think he was destined for the HoF if he could have stayed healthy. (33 WAR in first 6 seasons)

    Freaky....Here's a guy that din't throw hard! I was pissed when the dbacks let him go. I guess they knew it all along. I give them credit for not going public.

    I remember hating him back in the day because he would man handle the Giants. It seemed like every time they faced him they would ground into a ton of double plays.

    From 2003-2008, he was actually one of the 3 top pitchers in baseball. Very sad to see talent like that go down the drain.

    That sinker of his was downright nasty!

    What a ****** ending to a once promising career. He was such a beast in the mid 2000's.
