Didn't see this (http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id=2966580) posted anywhere.

I know Boomer was/is kind of an ass, but I always respected him for his refusal to care what anyone thinks of him.

This also begs the question: can the Sox do the same with Sox? Please?

Someone will probably pick him up. Like the Cardinals...they love ****ty pitchers.

And at only 6.5 back (could be 6 by the end of the night) in the division...it's looking likely that they could come out on top.

I highly doubt that. The NL Central may be bad, but the Cardinals REALLY stink this year. However bad the Brewers rotation may be, the Cardinals rotation is 10 times worse. Plus, they can't beat the Cubs to save their lives anyway.

Damn, I saw the thread title and was hoping ESPN fired Chris Berman. (What would be without) Wishful thinking.

I thought the same thing.

Thanks for getting me all hyped up for nothing. :rolleyes:

The Brewers and Cubs both really stink too. The Cards found a way last year, I think they're going to do it again. The holes in both the Brewers and Cubs are really showing now, and the Cards are right there (they have holes too, but the winner of the NL Central isn't going to be a good team).

I would love for the Cardinals to get hot again

Our friend Kip looked like he didn't belong on any roster, and has now put together about 5 straight decent starts. Too bad about Carpenter, the starters obviously have to step up though. 6 games isn't bad, especially in this division. Go Red Birds.

For the record, I would like to specifically state that I think the Sox should not pick him up. :wink:

Wells stint with the sox was a disappointment, but Boomer's been one of my favorites. Baseball needs some more guys like Wells.

Yes...the pin-stripes really do take off 20...30...100 lbs.

David Wells' reaction when he heard the news:

The Scrubs and Brew Crew falling over themselves to see who can lose more games lately

Only once did Wells ever blow a 4 run lead in a game

Chances are you remember the game.....:cool:

That may have been the most important comeback ever by the White Sox in their history. If that series goes back to Boston 1-1 who knows what would have happened.....(remember it rained in Boston for 5 days after Game 3....there was no way they could have played )

Ha! Look like a lot of us had the same (wishful) thought...including myself.

I admire the way he stole $20M+ from us. The good news is that today it would have been $30M+.
