And Wells just plain sucks. He'll struggle to get playing time and he'll not be worth using when he's in the lineup. He overhauled his swing and approach in the offseason so I suppose there's some nonzero chance he has a renaissance but I wouldn't bet on it.
Skin Blues wrote:Thanks bro, I realize his BABIP stinks. It will be better in 2012. He will still suck because he's not a good hitter. You know what was also worse last year than his prime years? Everything. He was just about the worst hitter in the league across the board among full time players. A slight BABIP correction is not going to change enough to make him relevant. Most washed up hitters would have a terrible BABIP if they were still being given playing time due to an enormous contract.
