Webb could be a huge addition for the Rangers.

Before 2009, Brandon Webb was considered one of the most consistent pitchers and one of the first pitchers off the board. From 2006 to 2008 he had an era a little over 3 each year, averaging around 18 wins and 185 strikeouts.

The addition of Greinke makes the Brewers legit.

The Kansas City Royals are once again in rebuilding mode but did they ever really leave it over the past ten years? They recently traded away the only player with significant relevance in fantasy baseball in former CY Young Winner, Zack Greinke. Greinke, along with Yuniesky Betancourt, were traded to the Milwaukee Brewers for shortstop Alcides Escobar, outfielder Lorenzo Cain and two pitching prospects.
