Webb signs with the Rangers

Postby Cream » Sun Dec 26, 2010 6:11 pm

Per Rotoworld...
Brandon Webb has reached a contract agreement with the Rangers, according to Ed Price of AOL Fanhouse.
Webb's agent Jonathan Maurer declined to comment on the report. The 31-year-old won the Cy Young in 2006 and produced a 3.30 ERA and 1.20 WHIP over 34 starts in 2008. His career derailed shortly thereafter, with shoulder problems limiting him to four innings over the last two seasons. Even so, Webb is a great low-risk signing by the Rangers, who lost staff ace Cliff Lee to the Phillies. Webb will likely be Texas' fourth starter. Contract terms have not yet been released. Texas beat out the Reds, Yankees, Rangers, Cubs and Nationals for Webb's services.

Not sure what to think of this with regards to fantasy baseball.

Meh. Thanks to Boras, the Cardinals beat out St. Louis in the Matt Holliday bidding last year.
