Chicago Cubs starter Randy Wells was about as good as it got for the Cubs last year: 12-10 with a 3.05 ERA, and finished (an unfair) sixth in the NL Rookie of the Year voting. The team is counting on the 27-year-old converted catcher to be a staple of the rotation this year, and will be giving him the ball on the Spring Training equivalent of Opening Day.
Wells recently got glasses because apparently he couldn’t see very well last year. So it’s pretty much assured that seeing better will completely wreck his signature control and ability to locate pitches, or, it will make him the greatest pitcher in the history of ever. Of ever.
