First time poster, and I'm sure there are many threads on this topic, but I've just got to ask...
If vernon wells wasn't making $26,642,857, would there be any chance in hell he'd still be in the lineup? Seriously, 355 at bats with a .208 average.They didn't keep Brandon Wood in the lineup this long.
Looking at the stats, only Adam Dunn is batting worse with close to at many at bats. Then again, Adam is making a paltry 12 million dollars.
I've got to think they're just stuck not wanting to wave the white flag at such an obscenely pricey blunder.
I never, ever thought I'd say it, but wells makes me miss gary matthews jr. That is such a terrifying realization.
Also, out of curiosity, what's the reaction from the home crowd when he comes to the plate? Is he greeted by boos? Are there chants for Trout? What's the hometown reaction to such high paid... well, you know.
