Vernon Wells = speed demon?

Postby The Indestructible » Thu Jun 03, 2004 1:47 am

He picked up two steals tonight, bringing him up to 5 on the year.

I always knew he had some speed, but he is on pace for double-digit steals, something I certainly hadn't projected for him. Needless to say, I'm pleasantly surprised.

I'm hoping to get a better read on Wells' base-running potential in Toronto. Is he running because Delgado is out? Is he running because the BJs offense hasn't exactly carried over from last year? Is Tosca finally giving him the green-light?

How many steals do you think he'll end up with?

Can anybody who follows the Jays (or sees Wells play) shed some light on this?

TIA

Vernon always had thief in his blood but the Blue Jays philosphy involves little to no stealing at all. Maybe they're (coaches) are startin to change their minds. David Justice talks about how much he hates the no steal theory all the time. Oakland is the same.
It's like I've died and gone to heaven......but then they realized that it wasn't my time, so they sent me to a brewery.

You actually listen to Justice?? His voice just irritates me when he does a game.

Fact is, the Blue Jays should be running WAY more than they have. And with Delgado out, maybe the philosophy will finally change. Hudson (when he returns) and Wells are both capable of notching 20 SB, and with the Jay lineup not exactly brimming with power these days, this is what they ought to be doing. Whether or not the inept Tosca can figure this out remains questionable.
