Lookout, Tubby - you may have some competition for the post game spread!

Came across this article from the NY Post today hinting that David Wells wants to return to the Yankees for round III.

team spokesman Team owner Hank Steinbrenner had this to say:
"I've thought about it," Steinbrenner told The Post. "I saw him on TV, and I did think about it when I was watching."
In true NY Post tabloid fever fashion, there were no direct quotes from Boomer about the possibility of returning to the NY Yankees, but just returning to baseball in general:

"I'm in shape, I'd just have to fine-tune a couple of things," Wells said. "I'd need a little bit of time, but not much. Physically I feel fine, real good."

The article also mentions that the 10 year anniversary of Wells' perfect game is fast approaching, at which time I ran into the bathroom, threw on some anti-aging cream and then put some headphones in and blasted Eve 6's Inside Out.

But seriously, if the Yankees could sign Roger Clemens to a RIDICULOUS contract in 2007, surely they can sign David Wells to an incentive laden deal in 2008, when they don't have a 4th or 5th starter who can get past the 5th inning or earn a win.

We need innings right now and he has a rubber arm. All we need is a 5th starter. Maybe he can do it?

PECOTA thinks he can be right around replacement level.

What do you think??

C'mon some of you 1990's Yankee nostalgics must be out there and agree with me! This is so unlike me, but I just want a guy who can give some innings and not walk the ballpark. Boomer is that guy.

I know one person who wants no part of Boomer returning to the Yankee clubhouse:



Even though Boomer is on a diet due to his diabetes, he is still a threat to Tubby's alpha-male status as clubhouse eating champion.

Editors note: After reading some anecdotes similar to mine about the egomaniacal beat blogger on the NoMaas.org discussion boards, I have decided to return to the low-road and bring back the fat jokes. They never go out of style.

Talk about it in the NYYSI Forums!

Calling the fat guy fat...super original. I have a few Stephen Hawking wheelchair jokes if you need some filler at any point in the near future...
