12/20 Cubs & Brandon Webb

Don’t start fitting Brandon Webb for a Cubs uniform. There was a report that the Cubs and Rangers have jumped ahead of the Nationals in the bidding for the right-hander, who has not pitched since one start in April 2009. The Cubs have checked Webb’s medical records — he’s been sidelined with shoulder issues — but it doesn’t appear to be a good match. Webb may want to pitch in Chicago but he most likely would have to give the Cubs the type of discount Kerry Wood did (one year, $1.5 million plus incentives).

Thank goodness! For a second, I almost got excited about our off-season. I wonder if the front office realizes how much they are letting down their fans.

the cubs have plenty of money left to sign webb. the kerry wood discount suggestion is misleading.
