Time To Give Randy Wells His Due

After ten starts, 63 innings pitched, 49 hits allowed, 14 walks, an ERA of 2.43, a WHIP that  was 1.09 before today's game, I think it is time to say out loud that Randy Wells could very well be like found money for the Cubs. He's only 26, but it would appear he learned a lot by watching spending all those years in the minor leagues. He doesn't rattle, he doesn't throw at batters when he gets upset, hell, when does he get upset? Since he was called up, has there been a more reliable starting pitcher on the team?


He has shown he can pitch out of jams, he listens to his catcher and coaches, he trusts his fielders, and his low walk total shows he knows how to throw strikes. If the Cubs only get one representative to the All Star Game this year (and what a come down after last year's eight), it isn't unreasonable to suggest Randy Wells deserves at least some consideration. In a year of one mess after another, he's been a real nice story.
