Anyone Giving Up on Brandon Webb?

Postby nobby » Tue May 10, 2011 9:09 am

Picked him up late round and stashed him in a DL spot. The issue is that its a salary league, based on 2010 salaries, so his $8.5M is wasted right now. I can cut him and get half of it back. I have been reading the updates, and am getting frustrated that there still is no timetable for his return. Anyone else getting antsy?

I'm not really familiar with salary leagues, but Webb is nothing special. There has to be some better options out there, especially if he takes up a bunch of salary.

Cut him. I did a similar thing only with out a salary cap and he hit the wire a few weeks ago. I have little faith that he is pitching in the majors as a starter anytime this year. Even if he does, the likely hood that you would want to start him is even less. Get what you can for him know.

I gave up on him last year. I don't see any harm in cutting him.
