What About Wells?

By bullpenbrian at 05.29.2010 Leave a comment.

Are you demoting Randy Wells to the bullpen? Tossing him under the bus after his disastrous outing Friday: five runs, zero outs?

I’m not sure what to make of it, either. But I do know Wells entered Friday’s game with opponents batting .152 against him in the first inning…not that St. Louis seemed to care.

Wells tossed a career-high 8.1 innings vs. Texas five days ago, which was good enough for his sixth quality start in nine outings. He went 3-0 in April and dropped two tough no-decisions this month…remaining solid overall.

So does one really bad outing justify sending Wells to the pen’? And are the Cubs any better with Zambrano in the rotation vs. Wells?

I’d say no. But Wells picked a bad day to have his worst day…and that might be the excuse the Cubs are looking for to get Big Z back in the rotation.
