The Sos announced today they did NOT exercise the option on David Wells---why? Im beginning to believe some are right about KW

Because the option price is ridiculously expensive (I think).

Now, we will see if KW can negotiate with Boomer and get him here cheaper - some team will.

I agree,and he has been quoted on seperate occasions by Chicago and New York print media saying he wants to return to Chicago.

Good riddance. David Wells is older than I am (I'll be 37 next month) he's NOT the guy you use to built for the future

No,but he is an innig eating veteren that would help a young pitching staff immenesly.

But then again what the hell do I know?

I agree - I think Boomer should come back next year. His asking price probably won't be outrageous after spending 2/3 of the season on the DL... He definitely would be nice to have back.

At least we don't have to know of Embree anymore.

Sad to see Cal go though.

Don't be so sure you have seen the last of Cal in the Sox organization.

He won't be named the pitching coach if that's what your saying Daver. I would like to see it but he really wants to be with his family. Maybe as some sort of scout though.

The Rays will probably try to sign him as their ace.

I am thinking you will see him as a minor league roving pitching instructor,which will give him the chance to see what we have in the minors and what they are and aren't doing right.
KW really likes and respects Cal,so I think he will stay with the organization.

Daver how do you have all this "inside news"? You always seem to post news that I never hear. You amaze me if I can be honest. Is it ok to be amazed by the actions of a redneck?

Sure as long as you don't mention pigs or sheep in the same sentence as amazed.

Thanks for clearing that up for me. I wouldn't want to run into a redneck and make a comment like that.

I read where KW hasnt been impressed with D.Wells workout and rehab assignments regarding his back surgery. I guess Wells never showed at the Fla. clinic for rehab let alone workouts. This guy is a huge risk.

Sign - Schnidt or Gardner of SF !
