Brandon Webb Update

The Pirates haven't contacted Webb since November 22nd.

Dejan Kovacevic reports that the Pittsburgh Pirates haven’t contacted free agent starting pitcher Brandon Webb since November 22nd, and that the pursuit has gone cold. ┬áKovacevic mentions that the Pirates are still interested in Justin Duchscherer, Jeff Francis, Scott Olsen, and other starting pitchers.

Last week we learned that the Pirates and Webb have a mutual interest, although lately the rumors have suggested that Scott Olsen is the top free agent target by the Pirates.
