I dont get it, he blew up his rotator cuff. It happens, not nearly as much as it used to but it does. And when your rotator cuff goes you're done for. Don Drysdale, a true legend had his career cut short by one.
I do hear it for the guys who would be in the hall of very, very good. Sucks that Webb got hurt, but guys like Jorge Posada, Carlos Beltran, Bernie Williams, Kenny Lofton, Tim Raines, Mike Mussina, Shawn Green, John Olerud, etc etc...
Where is the Lincecum, Denny McLain, Kerry Wood, Rick Ankiel, Dontrelle Willis, Ben Sheets, Mark Prior 30 for 30 movie?
I'm totally with this guy. Even though they are closers you can throw Willie Hernandez, Eric Gagne and Mark Davis into the list too along with countless others. Some guys do well for a few years and fade away, welcome to the MLB. Everybody cant have a movie or hall of fame.
