Vernon Wells Is Worth HOW MUCH???

I'll have more on this tomorrow, but the more that comes out about the Vernon Wells situation the more flabbergasted and pissed off I get.  You're telling me that not only did the Yankees willingly add 2014 salary in the form of Vernon Wells, they added salary at a $6.5 million per year clip???  For Vernon Wells???  That's the same deal they gave Ichiro and he's been way better than Vernon Wells the last four seasons.  Now the Yankees will head into NEXT season owing eight guaranteed figures to two declining, late-30s platoon outfielders.  Not exactly smart business for a club trying to operate on a budget.

It doesn't even matter what type of prospect or non-prospect they give up in this trade, when you agree to pay that much more for two years of Vernon Wells you're the loser of the deal.

Wait didn't Boesch have better numbers last year and don't they have Hafner to dh? What need does Wells even fill? Can he order pizzas like nobodies business? Is he a great caddy? Just who's job is he taking?

Even if he could order pizzas, I doubt he's as good at it as Freb.
