With Vernon Wells here the past few days doing Baseball Tonight for ESPN, I've jokingly chatted with him about how Cincy is a PERFECT fit for him. He's gone along with my banter good-naturedly, but I think it would really take a big contract or the exact right fit for him to leave Toronto. He really loves it there and enjoys the system he's involved in. I swear though, I saw a twinkle in his eye when I told him how great a hitter he was, but imagine his numbers in a bandbox like GABP. Peter Gammons (it's great to see him back and well by the way) and Karl Ravech, both huge Red Sox fans, tried to dismiss my hopes, but I told them I'd rather have Wells than Andruw Jones anyways. That may not have been entirely true, but I winked at Wells and he seemed amused by it all. Must be nice to be a phenomenal hitting talent going into free agency.
He's here for another couple days, anything else I should point out to favor him to the Redlegs?
