Webb Gem

Nice column by Rany Jazayerli comparing Brandon Webb and Orel Hershiser, as Brandon carries his 33 inning scoreless mark into his next start. They did have very similar backgrounds and their success in the majors is predicated on a sinking fastball. If Webb can pitch the Diamondbacks into the World Series ala Orel in 88, is Eric Byrnes their Kirk Gibson?
