  • David Wells go back to the Yanks!

    This guy doesn't want to be here, he will today probably make an end to the winning streak of the Red Sox. He should retire or go elswhere. Two hr in his first inning...mamma mia...He's done
    And no i'm not thinking i'm judging too quick.
    I know you're watching, Si. Bu.

    I second that. We need to send this horse's ass away. I had the feeling that he would suck tonight, and he's sucking bigtime.

      Jager, while I agree with you philosophically (I've never been a fan of Wells), do you think you could please try to make your point without being quite so vulgar?

      Thanks.

          I wouldn't write him off by any means, but I'm missing Arroyo even more tonight.

            Like alot of you, I totally saw this coming. He's been getting shelled all Spring, and I had a feeling tonight would be no different.

            I really hope that if he's this bad in his next start, the Red Sox won't give him more chances to stink it up. That they'll just get rid of him. He doesn't want to be here and it shows.

              He didn't do well in Pawtucket last week either- seven runs in five innings against the Indy Indians...That makes me wonder: if he did that poorly down in AAA what the heck is he doing back up in Boston so soon??? He should have stayed down there for a few more starts before he got called up.

                Wells to the Yankees. No way! I am glad we didn't sign him two years ago.

                  I'll second that. For the salary that Arroyo was pulling down (which we have yet to see balanced out in the trade), it makes me sick that he was bashed as the #7 starter. Folks, what you saw on the mound yesterday was the #7, who has yet to show that he wants to be anything more than that. I just hope Wells isn't doing anything deliberate to get the ties cut from above.

                    After a 6-1 start, I would expect some lamenting after our first home loss, but geesh, what's up with everyone? I'm disappointed in Wells' performance, too, but let's cut the guy some slack. . . he had off-season knee surgery and had limited ST work--what do you all expect?

                    I've never been a huge Boomer fan myself, but let's not go jumping off the bridge over this. Besides, where was this post after Wakefield's crappy game in Texas?

                      I was thinking the same thing...everyone take a deep breath and pace yourself. It is a long season. Wells will be average once he gets some innings under his belt.

                        Because there is a big differnence. Wakefield is always a solid pitcher, but sometimes if his knuckler isn't floating well he gets rocked. It just happened that it was his first start of the year. Wells however doesn't want to be here, and the only reason he is here is because he wants more money. He obviously wasn't ready, and he knew he wasn't ready, but if you look at his contract terms the more starts he makes the more money he gets. He has wore out his welcome here already. When they told Wells that he would sit out the first time around the rotation he went off and complained, and called Francona an idiot. He's selfish, out of shape, and doesn't want to be here. Can you really expect anyone to want him here if he's those things and he goes out there and pitches like a minor leaguer..... Oh wait he got rocked in AAA. NM.

                          I agree...sure, the guy is nobody's favorite, but it's one start. And he's back up in the majors because we needed a 5th starter at this point. Papelbon is the closer until further notice, so Wells got pressed into service.

                          If I remember correctly, Wells had a slow start last year, too...and people were calling for his head. Then he went out and won 15 games. If he wins 12-15 as the #5 starter, there's not much chance Boston isn't in the playoffs this year.

                            That first paragraph just isn't true. We didn't want him back in the majors. He had a fit when Francona told him that they were going to skip him the first two times through the rotation, and Wells threw a hissy fit. His contract is based on inscentives. The more games the more money. So Wells pressed his way back into the rotation. There is alot of talk today on sports shows that Wells is trying to get released. His fast ball didn't get above 84mph yesterday. 84! His curveball had no curve. He looked terrible, and its one thing to just be not good, but after you demand a trade in the offseason, then you come out and don't seem to care that your getting lit up like a firecracker it doesn't look good for you.

                              I elected not to rip Wakefield only because I've already posted quite a bit about him recently. Most of those posts have been of the "Wakefield is a valued member, but WAY too over-rated" variety. Efin98 and I had a number of exchanges about him, especially his penchant for giving up homeruns. If you look over his career with the Sox his seasonal numbers in that category would make him a candidate for trade if he were anyone else.

                              But as to Wells, he's ready for retirement. I wasn't sold when they brought him in and my opinion hasn't wavered very much. It was his first start of the year (I'm thankful he didn't start off against Texas). I hope he can still manage 12-14 wins, but I'm not holding my breath. I just think the fire's gone for him.
