He's a good pitcher. As long as he keeps his walks down he'll provide solid stats across the board.

I'll say it before and I'll say it again, THE BEST SINKER IN BASEBALL.

He is a fantstic keeper option and should get you a great stat line except for the wins (ARI has no offense). Keep in mind he has few fly balls so HRs are hard to come by from this guy.

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

He kind of flew under my radar last year. I didn't realize until the season was over that he put up some not bad stats. If he's around in the middle rounds this year...i'll probaby take him.

There are a few reasons to like him. As most people mentioned, he has a great sinker, resulting in high # of GBs. The upgrade on infield defense can only help him.

His Ks are unusually high, an indication that given his age and experience, he is not near his potential yet. But as a result, his BBs are high as well. If he utilizes his defense better in situations, I think he will be very successful.

7-8 round in a 12 team league I would think. He is a solid #2, a fantastic #3.

In the four cafe mocks he's been going around the 11-12 round territory. I agree with everyone in this thread that he represents very good value at that stage of a draft.

Wow, in a 12 team if I could get Webb in the 12th I would consider the league to be a lock win.
