Ok, I know I’ve mentioned before that I thought that Carlos Silva would get a spot instead of Randy Wells, but I change my mind. In fact Prose and Ivy gave me the equivalant of, “Are You crazy?”
So, let me look at Randy Wells. He played really great against the Giants the other day retiring 18. Not bad. I think I’m understating the performance. Also, it was a good game and they beat the champs.
Last year, Wells lost confidence. I think that’s important because unlike a hitter, you can go to the batting cage, work on the eye and timing, but with pitching-it’s all mental, you can be the best pitcher in the game, but when the confidence isn’t there, it’s done.
If Wells keeps up playing the way he’s doing, he’s going to have a standout season.
