VERNON WELLS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Victor Rojas and Vernon Wells got into a Twitter beef

While the rest of the world was busy watching the insanity that is the Royals-Athletics Wild Card game, Angels announcer Victor Rojas and former Angels albatross Vernon Wells got into a Twitter beef. It all started with a throwaway comment about Jayson Nix: Kind of explains Nix’ 2014 transactions… — Victor Rojas (@VictorRojas29) October 1, 2014 And then Vernon Wells apparently...

Report: Phillies Have Expressed Interest in Vernon Wells

  According to a report via Nick Carfardo of the Boston Globe, the Philadelphia Phillies for whatever reason have expressed interest in signing a player who many think has placed one foot into retirement. Vernon Wells, OF, free agent — It’ll be interesting to see whether Wells elects to retire and collect $21 million or hook on with another team after his release by the Yankees...

Vernon Wells Designated for Assignment By Yankees – What’s Next?

On Friday, the New York Yankees designated outfielder Vernon Wells for assignment, furthering Wells’ slide from one of the league’s most feared offensively-minded outfielders to a journeyman who can’t stay on a team for more than a year. Wells, 35, appeared in 130 games for the Yankees in 2013, slashing .233/.282/.349 with 11 home runs spread across 458 plate appearances. In...

All's well that ends Wells

I came to like Vernon Wells. All last season, he never whined. He never Sheffielded – which is to say, he never not hit and then complained, because he wasn’t getting a chance to not hit some more. He took his miserable over-swings, and when they didn’t work, he walked back to the dugout and took his medicine. It hurts to see a great player in the dregs of his career, and nobody...

Yankees say adios to Wells

ESPN’s Buster Olney tweeted that the New York Yankees designated Vernon Wells for assignment today, which is not really surprising considering his lack of production last season. The Yankees have designated Vernon Wells for assignment, as they create roster spots on their 40-man. — Buster Olney (@Buster_ESPN) January 10, 2014 This freed up one spot on their 40-man roster for...

Now that Robbie's gone, brace yourself for the other homegrown Yankee hitter, Brett Gardner, to follow

Yesterday, Vernon Wells went on the radio to say he'd love, love, love to return to the Yankees in 2014. One problem, though. Last year, Vernon sucked.  These days, reports from Japan say Ichiro Suzuki is also looking forward to donning pinstripes in 2014. That .297 on-base-percentage really gets your hopes up, eh? Why is bile directed at these aging stars clogging up a post about...

Brian Roberts, the new Vernon Wells?

According to the Internet, which is always right, the Retrieval Empire is about to sign 36-year-old former Orioles lug nut Brian Roberts to play 2B. The top Yankee web tribunalists are awaiting the details before rendering judgement, an element of wisdom usually lacking on this site. Frankly, it doesn't matter if we have Roberts for one year or three, here's what will get this season...
