    Padres to cut ties with David Wells

    The Padres plan to cut ties with veteran left-hander David Wells on Thursday.
    According to a major-league source, Wells, 44, will be designated for assignment and simultaneously placed on release waivers, giving the Padres three days to trade him.
    Wells is owed just slightly under $1 million for the rest of the season and is earning approximately $170,000 per start in incentive bonuses. He could appeal to another contender in need of starting pitching, including possibly the Padres' NL West rivals, the Dodgers.
    However, Wells has pitched poorly in his last four starts, going 0-3 with a 14.33 ERA during that stretch. He also has rankled commissioner Bud Selig with his recent comments about umpires.
    The departure of Wells will coincide with the return of right-hander Chris Young from the 15-day disabled list. If this is the end for Wells, he will head off into retirement with a career mark of 235-156.

    The 10 spot the Cards put on the Pads the other day was the capper, but the fact is mostta those were bleeders jes outta the reach of infielders...he deserved better results.

    But results is what its all about, and his past 4 games weren't good.

    Anahoo, fair seas, Boomer, I, for one, appreciate what you did while you were here.

    He's had a great career but father time was destined to catch up to him eventually.

    Sad to see it happen like this, though.
