I'm usually not one to make a judgement on a small sample size but I don't think Wells is even worth keeping on the 40 this off-season.  Not if it means exposing someone to the Rule 5 draft.

Just doesn't seem to me he will ever be able to get MLB hitters out.

I'm not sure which is worse - his fastball or his curveball.

Wells finished strong, retired the last 8 he faces.

And after they loaded the bases with no one out in the 1st, he only allowed 5 more baserunners in 5 innings.  And of course the 2-run su fle was a cheap bloop.

Just catching up now. Looked at replay of Hays throwing to Gutierrez who tagged someone out in  rundown between 2nd and 3rd base. Q: It looked like the throw from Hays got in in time for Gutierrez to throw home for a play there. But then he does this weird thing of turning back and  tagging third base. Or did he drop the ball and that's where it fell to and he grabbed it again there? Hard to see because of the camera angle. If the latter, it was a good opp. flubbed by Gutierrez. Or maybe Hays shd have just thrown home? Thanks.

Loving the Orioles is like being in an abusive relationship. You just can’t walk away, you keep hoping that it will be better, and right now you’re looking at losing it in 10 days, and you want to do something to keep it.

That is one of the worst strike calls I have seem all year.  Thankfully he walked him on the next pitch anyway.

Yup, 5 ball walk.  The first ball 4 was way out of the zone - just bizarre strike call.
