The Rockies remain interested in Brandon Webb

Brandon Webb won the NL Cy Young Award in 2006. That seems like a gabillion years ago. But he still hasn’t called it quits. We heard recently that he plans to throw for teams this month.  Today Troy Renck reports that the Rockies remain interested in him.

It has to be hard to be a gamble/comeback story like Webb. The worst place you could probably wind up is Colorado and its high-elevation farm system, but they’re perpetually in need of pitching so they’re the most interested.

Anyway, in a world where Ben Sheets makes it back and ends his career on a mound rather than on a disabled list, there has to be room for Brandon Webb to give it one last try as well.  As someone who enjoyed watching him pitch, I hope he gets a legitimate shot at it.

    Webb deserves a shot. He has worked hard to make a comeback.

    The Rockies should be looking at every ground ball pitcher that can hurl a ball 60 feet.
