I haven't found anything online yet, but ESPN Radio has been reporting that it will be announced later today that David Wells will be heading to San Diego.

From espn.com

David Wells apparently will be pitching for his hometown San Diego Padres in 2004.

The Padres are expected to announce that the left-hander, who at one time was close to finalizing a minor-league deal with the Yankees, has signed an incentive-laden one-year contract, the San Diego Union-Tribune and the New York Post reported in their Wednesday editions.

I am so-so on this deal. I REALLY wanted to see Maddux in a Padres uniform next year, but only because i am sure he can perform. Granted so can Wells, he just scares me a tad. As long as he pitches like he has in the past, then this will be an awesome deal. With incentives he can make 7 million dollars. I'd pay that any day for an ace.

As for drinking, I'm pretty sure those two guys will make Dicks Last Resort their new home. They seem like the kinda guys that would love that place and its only a mile or so away from Petco.

Last summer when I was in Des Moines with some friends we drove down to the stadium to see Shooter's camper outside Sec Taylor Stadium when he was with AAA Iowa before being sent off to San Diego. Unfortunately no one was home. We were hoping to catch him and sit and have a few beers.

So my only drinking with a ballplayer story remains to be the time in Chicago when my buddies and I drank with Keith Johns at a bar outside Wrigley. Only the insane baseball geeks would know who he is. He played a total of two games in 1998 with the BoSox. You can look him up on http://www.baseball-reference.com or some other site. Not a lot of time in the show except for the cup of coffee in Boston but it was interesting nonetheless to hear stories from a journeyman minor leaguer. Plus we had Schlitz in a bottle, which is a hard find!

I realize the prior two paragraphs have nothing to do with Wells, but what the heck. Happy New Year!

At first this looked like a good move for the Padres....but after thinking about it...Boomer and Shooter coming to the ballpark everyday hungover..... :-?

David Wells - S - San Diego Padres Dec 31

Padres signed LHP David Wells, who had been with the Yankees, to a one-year, $1.25 million contract.
Wells could make up to $7 million through incentives. He's expected to start on Opening Day for the Padres if he's recovered from back surgery. Brian Lawrence, Jake Peavy, Adam Eaton and either Ismael Valdes or Sterling Hitchcock will make up the rest of the San Diego rotation. The Yankees will get a supplemental first-round pick and the first selection in the second round for losing Wells, so they shouldn't be too disappointed.
