10:30am: MLB.com’s Steve Gilbert says it would’ve been a three-year, $54MM extension for Webb with an option for 2014. The two sides actually agreed on the years and dollar amount, but some other point of contention caused the talks to be tabled. Perhaps no-trade clause details? Webb will become a 10-and-5 player in 2013.
9:20am: Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic talked to D’Backs ace Brandon Webb, who said he had an extension agreement with the team in June. However, the Diamondbacks pulled the offer. It would’ve been a three-year extension to keep Webb with the team through 2013. Dan Haren recently signed through 2012 with an option for ’13. Webb and Haren form one of the game’s top 1-2 punches.
Webb and GM Josh Byrnes still seem open to hammering out a deal, perhaps in the offseason.
