November 8, 2009
Just three days after the completion of the 2009 World Series and already the changes have begun for the Arizona Diamondbacks. It was to be expected that the team would make some adjustments to their roster given the fact that the team finished in last place some 25 games behind the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Arizona wasted no time in getting started. Their first order of business was the 2010 option on Brandon Webb. From the comments coming from General Manager Josh Byrnes and Managing General Partner Ken Kendrick it came as no surprise that Arizona picked up the option ensuring that Webb would begin the season at the top of the Diamondbacks rotation.
