Is Vernon Wells Injured?

Postby kemper5 » Sat Jun 09, 2007 12:52 pm

Just read where he has hit 1 HR and 12 RBI's in nearly 6 weeks now since the last part of April. Is he injured? Got that massive contract and has fallen flat on his face!

it is quite the contrary:
he has fully recovered from the "annus-contraho" disease from last year.

Just as injured as Pujols was when he was slumping.

I've benched him in two leagues for Corey Hart until he turns it around.

yep, benched him too. But my other outfield options are pretty good. Swisher, Sizemore, Bill Hall, and Soriano.

I am going to be wary in the future of drafting or trading for any player who received a big contract in the offseason. My three biggest underperformers on my team is V. Wells, B. Hall, and J. Lugo who all got big contracts in the offseason. The only one who panned out far on my team is Carlos Lee. Don't know if it is the euphoria of knowing you have financial security but sometimes I wish ball players would be paid yearly based upon their performance. Having said that, there is no news at all on any potential injuries. I hope Wells can turn it around but with so many underperforming players on my team I have no choice but to play Wells everyday. His trade value has dropped considerably so there is no point in trying to trade him. The talent is there, but at this point in time I am not sure if the desire is there. Maybe he'll have another career year in the last year of his contract ... seven years from now.

I just packaged Wells along with Papelbon, who has been disappointing for me in a H2H format because of the Sox high margin of wins beyond 3 runs and also their relunctance to use him in back to back save ops when they do come. I traded the both of them for Ben Sheets and Jim Thome. We'll see if it pays off or not, though I dont mind taking the risk as I am convinced Wells will not return to 06 form.
