Wells? Wow, They're Desperate

Now the Daily Snooze is reporting that the Junkees are thinking about bringing back David Wells. Just how dumb are they? Here's a guy who's going to be 42 in May, admits that he doesn't take care of himself, and had a decent year in '04 in a pitcher's park. The Junkees are looking to recreate the Junkees of '96-'00, so what do they do? They bring back the same players from that era!

I'm a tad nervous if they do bring him back, because he might pitch well, but at the same time, there's enormous potential that he'll stink up the joint, so it's exciting that he might be back in pinstripes next season. And if they commit to giving him a spot in the rotation and then he breaks down, the Junkees will be plucking guys out of the scrap heap.

Now you know it's only a matter of time until they talk to Roger Clemens. Will they try to talk the Astros into trading back Andy Pettitte? Maybe they'll try to talk David Cone into coming out of retirement...

There's also the factor of George tweaking Snorre, so for that alone it's worth bringing Wells back.

Oh, I can imagine the Junkees '05 rotation:


Scary, huh? NOT!

Hey, I thought Wells plays for the Sox. Does that make them desperate too?
