The Dodgers are interested in Brandon Webb

Nov 10, 2010, 5:02 PM EDT


That’s what Troy Renck tweets — that the Nationals and Dodgers “have some interest” in Brandon Webb — and it’s about all we have on the matter.

As we’ve said before, Webb would be a risk, but not a terrible one at a low salary. If he’s healthy he could be a pretty good starter again.  It’s just that there’s nothing suggesting that he’s going to be ready for spring training at present. The Nats — with a lowish payroll and not a big shot at competing next year — should probably take risks like that. The Dodgers — big revenue and a good core of players — normally wouldn’t be in that category. But I guess that’s life with the McCourts.

    I think the Pirates, Marlins, Reds or Orioles could sorely use him.

    The Dodgers have 3 starters lined up thus far and even if they bring both Padilla & Kuroda back, someone is going to miss time and/or be highly ineffective. At the right price Webb would be a good gamble for any team as the player waiting in the wings when a rotation spot opens up.

    Why exactly would the Reds need him? Arroyo, Volquez, Cueto, Bailey, Leake, Wood, Chapman….
    Sure the upside in a healthy Webb sounds nice, but pushing youth out of the rotation?
