Not George Scott

David Wells for two years? Come on, Theo, follow it up with something inspiring, because this ain’t it.

(actually, it may not be a bad signing if in the context of a complete pitching staff yet TBD, but it better just be that, a filler piece)

  • Wells is just such a tough decision if you’re a gm. He’s a complete ass, and he can break down at any moment (we’re guessing that 1 inning stint in the 03 WS is scaring away the Yanks) but he’s relatively cheap and when he is pitching he’s brilliant. Which makes him an ideal back-of-the-rotation starter for a team that doesn’t need to count on him for the playoffs and has the cash/flexibilty to make something happen if he implodes. In that light, he might just suit the Sox needs.

  • If healthy, and in good shape as he was for the Padres, it’s a good signing–assuming that we resign Pedro too.
    But I don’t like that formula. Too many variables. Too many 38 year-olds, too.
    After the 2005 season, where do we turn for the centerpiece of our rotation? Schilling will be 40, Wells 42 or 43, Wakefield 39, and Pedro 34. Arroyo? Riiiight.
