Barry Zito is the #1 free agent pitcher out there this offseason.
But if I had a choice, I'd give a much bigger contract, for longer, and more money per year, to Brandon Webb, than to Barry Zito.
If I had a choice between the two, I'd take Webb over Zito, no question. And it isn't even close. Webb is a better pitcher, and a much better fit for the Rangers, than Zito.
And yet, I have to wonder how many Rangers fans -- or casual baseball fans in general -- even know who Webb is.
