Although it makes me feel guilty to admit this, since my father has been a New York Yankees fan since the early 1940s, I rooted for the Diamondbacks in the 2001 World Series. It's the only time I've ever rooted for a team in teal, come to think of it. Now, though, the Diamondbacks are attired in more traditional red and white. And they're about as hard not to like as a my mother's cherry pie. Brandon Webb. What can I say? He's been excellent since he was a rookie, but has clearly taken his game to another level. I doubted I'd see anyone get so close to Orel Hersheiser's record of scoreless innings pitched and certainly not this soon. Wait, it has been almost twenty years. I'm getting old. Never mind. The important thing is that we be mindful of Webb's brilliance.
