Baseball Toaster was unplugged on February 4, 2009.
Man, I miss this cat.
Your way was better, Chyll.
Being more objective, Wells is 45. He last faced major league hitters on 9/28/07 - seven months ago. (Caveat - it was a Bonds-less Giants lineup.) Last year, in the weaker eague, his ERA was 5.43. He made 19 of his 29 starts in pitchers' parks: SF, LA, and SD. Petco might be one of the most ridiculous pitchers' parks in MLB history, and 13 of those 19 starts came there. His ERA in those starts was 4.01. That means, in non-Petco-aided starts, his ERA was 6.99.
I'd sooner see the Yanks take Igawa for another spin around the block than bring Wells back.
