Brandon Webb to Sign with Rangers.

December 26, 2010

Ed Price of Fan House is reporting Brandon Webb has agreed to sign with the Texas Rangers pending a physical.

Terms of the deal were not yet known.

This ends speculation of a mystery N.L. Central team having interest in Webb.

Cubs and Nationals Out on Brandon Webb.

December 26, 2010

Jayson Stark of ESPN.com is reporting the Cubs and Nationals are out on the Brandon Webb sweepstakes. Both had been rumored along with the Rangers in the past couple of weeks.

That leaves the Rangers and a N.L. Central Mystery team. With the Cubs out and the Brewers almost certainly out after the acquisition of Zack Greinke the list of N.L. Central remaining is the Cardinals, Reds, Pirates and Astros. It would be hard to imagine the Pirates or Astros going after Webb as they are in rebuilding mode.

That would leave the Reds or Cardinals. The Reds would seem more likely as the Cardinals are have avery good rotation with Carpenter, Wainright, Garcia, Westbrook and Lohse.
