Angels Receive Cayones, Sneed In Vernon Wells Deal

I guess we cant expect much since they ate 14million of his salary but a minor league starter and right fielder...

Even the Onion gets in on Vernon Wells

8

"Vernon hasn't been running so smoothly lately, and he keeps freezing all the time, so we're deactivating and reactivating him a couple times because sometimes that works," said Angels general manager Jerry Dipoto, who confirmed that he instructed trainers to blow on Wells a few times while he was deactivated to remove any built-up dust."

How Vernon Wells Can Help the Angels

22

It's behind the ESPN Insider paywall, but if you're a subscriber (what? I got it for free with some promotion), it's a good article by FanGraphs' Dayn Perry about how a smart, modern team would use Wells for what he's good at, and not set him up to fail by repeating last year. It is my hope that DiPoto will be the kind of GM to encourage this type of thinking and strategy, instead of letting Scoscia do What Has Always Been Done all the time.

Bill Plunkett: Vernon Will Not Opt Out of His Contract (sigh...)

61

No surprise here but Bill Plunkett grew a pair and asked Vernon if he was gonna opt out of his contract. Vernon has no plans to do so, stating: "Maybe it’s just society, but people put too much on struggling," Wells said. "All of a sudden, everything is negative – you’re a bad guy; you’re unhappy. It’s a struggle, yeah. But that’s all it is. I’ve struggled before. Baseball is such a different game. You can be an All-Star one year, struggle the next year and become an All-Star again. "It is what it is. … (Southern California) is a great place to live, a great place to play. I’ve got a lot of good years left and I look forward to having them there." Feel free to tell Vernon to think otherwise on his facebook HERE. One guy has already told him to "HIT MORE HOME RUNS, PLZ!"

The baseball gods agree: Sit Wells and Mathis already

I wrote this last night on a sugar-fueled hate binge. Lady opportunity beckons the Angels, but they refuse to budge.

Sam Miller, OCR: Assessing Vernon Wells’ season so far

13

With his hallmark thoroughness - spray charts and the works - Sam sketches up six ways to look at Vernon Wells' season so far. Plenty of Millerisms included, not the least of which is this: "Last year, Vernon Wells hit .224/.299/.400 away from Rogers Centre. This year, away from Rogers Centre — which is to say, his entire season — Wells is hitting .222/.248/.409. Why, those are virtually the same! I have no idea if this is significant, but it is definitely one way of assessing Vernon Wells’ season".

Wells: Slow Bat Speed? Injury? Off year?

20

A Yahoo blog is reporting that Wells' slump may be due to slow bat speed, injury, or an off-year, or all of the above. I hope it's not the slow bat speed. I don't know how you recover from that...
