Who else are they going to bench? Maybe they should choose the guy who was in a wheelchair for a month? Or maybe they should sit the guy who hasn't pitched more than 6 innings in spring training?
BostonHerald.com - Boston Red Sox: All not Wells again -- Lefty upset he may not get a turn
The left-hander, who on March 5 rescinded his offseason request to be traded, appeared in his first spring game yesterday by throwing three decent innings in a minor league intrasquad affair. When told afterward by reporters that the possibility existed the team wouldn’t need him until the first time a fifth starter was required around April 15, Wells’ eyes widened.
“If that’s the way they feel, they can grant that first wish then,” he said. “If they’re going to use that against me, there’s other alternatives.”
I'd be more than happy to send Wells on his way, with a thank you and see you around. There were two scouts at yesterday's throwing session by Wells: from the Arizona Diamondbacks and Texas Rangers.
