Good Luck Boomer

As we all know by now, David Wells is back in San Diego who holds a 1 game lead in the wild card standings. I'm sure he'll be happy to be in the middle of a pennant race in what will probably be his last season. I'm glad since I may actually have someone to root for in the playoffs. I've always been a fan of Wells. Yes (and you may be surprised to hear it) even when he was a Yankee. Unless he was pitching against us of course.

One of the things I like the most about him is he is kind of an anti-athelete. Rather than getting the canned pro-athelete answers, or over the top Terrell Owens-esque shenanigans, you got one thing... David Wells. You got real talent, real opinions, real answers, and yes, some nonsense, some drama but overall it always seemed honest. That more than anything makes me respect a man. So... Good Luck in San Diego, I hope to see you in the playoffs.
