Cubs Hot Stove – Bonderman & Webb

By bullpenbrian - November 30, 2010 - 12:01 am 4 comments.

I like the idea of the Cubs going after Brandon Webb and Jeremy Bonderman.
Both these guys potentially give the Cubs that power-arm and innings eater they desperately need in the rotation.

Webb, 31, hasn’t pitched since Opening Day 2009 because of a shoulder injury. But his track record is brilliant having won 14, 16, 18 & 22 games since 2005. That includes the 2006 Cy Young Award and top three finishes in 2007-08.

The Cubs won’t get him on the cheap, but it’s likely Webb will sign for a short-term deal. If so, I think it’s in the Cubs favor to take a risk on a guy who could very well revert to his old form. Quite frankly, I think it’s a no-brainer.
