A couple of clubs have their eye on 44 year-old southpaw David Wells: the Mariners and Reds. Hey, for a few million bucks why not.
The Ms would represent Boomer’s ninth organization. Signing him surely wouldn’t preclude them from acquiring another, more reliable starter.
He did have a brief stint with the Reds in 1995, making 11 starts for them before being sent to Detroit in a deadline deal. I read Wells’ book several years ago, but can’t remember exactly how his "tortured dealings" with Marge Schott played out.
Wells has interest in pitching for the Mets, but his agent hasn’t been able to get an audience with them yet.
