Yesterday we learned that the Rangers and Nationals are still showing strong interest in Brandon Webb, the Cubs' pursuit has slowed, and there is a mystery NL Central team expressing late interest. I wouldn't be surprised to see other teams in play as well. The latest:
- The Reds "haven't had any conversations about Webb recently, and thus are not the mystery team," tweets John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer. The Reds are the closest team to Webb's Kentucky home. Are the Astros, Pirates, or Cardinals the unknown team?
- The Brewers are not the NL Central mystery team, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel learned from GM Doug Melvin.
