Wells was designated for assignment. The Yanks are on the hook for only 2.4 million. They needed a roster spot for Roberts.

Alas, Vernon, we hardly knew ye.

It makes sense that they would hold on to Ichiro and let Wells go. Ichiro might make it more appealing for Tanaka to sign with the Yanks and the possibility of his 3k hit with the Yanks would generate some tickets being sold.

Very classy of Wells to tweet a Thank You to the Yanks. I like Wells and it is tough that he is pretty much done. That was a horrible contract, but at least he is not a douche like Bobby Bonilla.

As Frank Burns would say, "It's nice to be nice to the nice."

[3] Hey, whaddaya mean? Bobby Bo offered to take selected members of the NY media on a guided tour of the Bronx. For free!

Are the Mets still paying him? He had one of those ABA style life-time contracts, right?
