Is Brandon Webb the Best Pitcher in Baseball?

Brandon Webb (shown here in a Bowman Heritage 2003 rookie baseball card) won his 11th game of the season last night and as an owner of his in the National Fantasy Baseball Championship I couldn’t be more excited that he’s now on pace for 29 wins. Tie in a mid-2 ERA and WHIP of 1.00 and pace for almost 200 Ks and I’m wondering if he’s the best pitcher in baseball.

Webb burst onto the scene with a big rookie season but posted a miserable 7-16 record in his sophomore campaign due in large part to nearly 120 walks. He since has straightened out his control and for the past 2 and third seasons Brandon Webb has had pure Cy Young stuff.

For his career the 29 year old Webb has posted 75 wins a 3.19 ERA and 7.3 Ks per 9. I think he’s a perennial stud in fantasy baseball and in a few years I think the conversation surrounding Brandon Webb will start to focus on Hall of Fame possibilities. I recommend stocking up on Brandon Webb rookie baseball cards and memorabilia now!
