webb? webb's been getting rocked lately. i definitely think beckett should be mentioned as a bonafide ace with the rest of them. hes been exceptional and his k/b is awesome.
The same Beckett that gave up 36 jacks in 2006? Or the same one on pace to allow 26 jacks this season? Beckett has never had an ERA for a season as low as Webb's ERA in 2003, 2006, 2007 or this season. Oh yes, and Webb has never been on the DL his entire career. Or allowed more than 21 jacks in a year (when his ERA was *gasp* 3.54).
Webb is so much more reliable since he came into the league than any other pitcher, it isn't even funny. He allowed seven runs a couple games ago, so I guess this is probably the only chance you've had since 2003 to critique him.
