Cy Young Winner Brandon Webb Retires at 33: Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Brandon Webb, the National League Cy Young award winner in 2006 and runner up the next two seasons, has announced his retirement from baseball at age 33. Webb last pitched on the opening day of the 2009 season against the Colorado Rockies, leaving after four innings with shoulder discomfort. Two comeback attempts and shoulder surgeries later, he's throwing in the towel. "I was at the top of my game, at the top of the game and then it was just suddenly over," Webb said. Baseball writer Rob Neyer says Webb threw "one of the most devastating sinking fastballs that anyone has ever seen."
