Vernon Wells is terrible again

Whatever deal Vernon Wells struck with the devil to revive his career upon his arrival in New York this season looks like it had a pretty early expiration date. One of the most surprising developments of the early 2013 was that Wells, fresh off of being banished from Anaheim, landed in the Bronx and suddenly began playing like he was back in his prime.

The ancient storytellers say that on May 17, 2002, the tragic hero named Jason became a Yankee Argonaunt for eternity. It happened in the 14th inning of what appeared to be a soul-stealing defeat to the fearsome Twins.

Back to basics for Wells

They say Baseball is a game of adjustments. You have to constantly adjust because your opponent is doing the same thing, almost like a cat and mouse game.

Seemingly in a downward spiral, Wells was relegated to the fifth outfield spot on the Angels...
