Almost as great as signing Tony Womack for two years
You say Womack, I say Wells.
I'll take David Wells over Tony Womack every day of the week and twice on Sundays.
Well you don't have a choice because you have Wells and:
Wells, at his age, blowing off mandatory workouts.
Wells slumping down the stretch because of poor conditioning, because he blew off those mandatory workouts.
Wells not available for big games in October, like say a WS Game 5, and keeping it to himself until minutes before the start. All because of his age and a bad back that is aggravated when he blows off those mandatory workouts.
Wells isn’t the kind of team “idiot” that would fit into your clubhouse. If you guys were crying about Pedro leaving a game early in April, good luck.
That’s your new reality.
In terms of Womack, his numbers are carbon copies of Cairo’s. He’ll bat 9th and will add speed on the bases. Given that both Cairo and Wilson are heading for the exit, I wouldn’t bank on Womack starting for two years at second base. Floyd for Manny has a much better chance of happening. In fact, I doubt Womack would be the starter on opening day.
