D'Backs Interested In Mulder, David Wells

Something broken, something old.  According to the Arizona Republic, the D'Backs have made an offer to free agent Mark Mulder.  Additionally, they may try to coax David Wells out of retirement.

At this point, Wells on a one-year deal for less than $10MM sounds reasonable.  This ain't 2005 anymore.  Boomer turns 44 in May, but he might be able to provide 180 league average innings.  His pinpoint control isn't going anywhere.

Mulder could actually prefer a one-year deal, as a way of maximizing his earnings.  Whatever the offer was, it did not include incentives.  What would it take - $7MM guaranteed?  I don't see a Mulder signing as a potential bargain.  He won't be ready for Opening Day and he may struggle upon his return. 

The Diamondbacks have also spoken to Tomo Ohka's agent.  Brandon Webb, Doug Davis, and Livan Hernandez are locks for their rotation.  Juan Cruz, Dana Eveland, and Edgar Gonzalez will compete for openings.
