The bidding is down to the Rangers and a mystery team for Webb's services. Believe it or not, there's actually been two mystery teams linked to Webb, but one of these teams may very well be the Yankees.
George King of the New York Post reports that while there are no plans for the former NL Cy Young Award winner to visit the Yankees, New York is keeping tabs on the right-hander's market.
Complicating matters in Webb's new home is that he is demanding a significant deal although he has started exactly one game -- Opening Day, 2009 -- in the last two years. In addition, a source tells King that Webb may not be ready to pitch until July.
UPDATE: Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports hears the Reds are Texas' main competition for Webb's services. While Texas' team physician is the one who performed surgery on Webb in August 2009, the Reds have the pitching coach (Bryan Price) and trainer (Paul Lessard) that spent years with Webb in Arizona.
UPDATE: Ed Price of AOL Fanhouse reports that Webb has agreed to terms with the Rangers pending a physical. This may take Texas out of the running for Carl Pavano, although the team likely wouldn't blanch at adding Pavano to the club.
Another result of this may be Neftali Feliz remaining ensconced as a reliever.
