Yeah, Brandon Webb is making me look like a genius. He is also padding my first place lead in my Yahoo Roto League, and making my brethern in my league jealous with envy
With that being said...Webb has now pitched 42 consecutive scoreless Innings.
The below copy and paste is from Rotoworld tonight. Some pretty "pro" stuff!
>>Brandon Webb is just the 21st pitcher ever to go even 40 straight innings without allowing a run. Webb still has at least two starts to go before matching Orel Hershiser's record of 59 set back in 1988, but no player besides Webb has come closer in the 18 seasons since. He'll try and extend the streak when the Diamondbacks face the Brewers next week.<<
