Brandon Webb, feeling good, keeping an eye on free agency

Jan 7, 2010, 2:00 PM EDT

ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick caught up with Brandon Webb, who’s down in Arizona preparing for a comeback season with the Diamondbacks. He says he feels fine and is ready to pitch, but of course guys always say that.  We’ll see once he starts to face live hitters in spring training.

More interesting were the Kentucky native’s comments about free agency, which he’ll hit after this season:

“Obviously you want to see what’s out there and do the best deal you
can for yourself and your family. That’s probably No. 1.  We’ve
had a great time in Arizona, and if everything works out and we stay
here, that would be good. But to get back close to home [in Kentucky]
would be just as good. I’m definitely keeping it open. I’m not going to
hold myself down to just Arizona.”

The joke around these parts is that Cincinnati is the capital of Kentucky.  And there’s a lot of truth to that.  No, I don’t see the Reds having any desire whatsoever to pay what a healthy and effective Brandon Webb would command in free agency.  But then again, I’ve never met a guy from Kentucky who didn’t think hard about taking a job in Cincinnati to be near mom and dad once or twice a year either.

    There’s some truth to what you say about Cincinnati, where I live. We get as much news about KY politics as we do about Ohio’s, and Frankfort is closer to downtown Cincy than Columbus. We get UK and UL sports on local radio, but not TOSU. The Greater Cincinnati International Airport is in northern Kentucky.
    That said, I think Webb will take the money if it comes from anyone in either Central Division, particularly the NLC. It’s not as if Webb is from right across the river and can move right back into his old stomping grounds.

    To marketplace in full terms of quality rather than cost, and in order to differentiate consequently, you need to watch the classic format of the 4 Ps marketing plan. That is, Price, Product, Place and Promotion manifestly you know the important attributes of the merchandise, and the cost, but for place you should consider approximately the type of individuals who are willing to give over 4x price of competing production whereas the low-cost option may be sold where accent is on cost, your product will be suited to places/distributors where the clients will be willing to pay for high-performance. Thank you for this article! I’ve just watched a easily good amazing news archive about advertising Attempt it!
