Boomer In Blue!

After proving that he's too sexy for the San Diego Padres, the Dodgers have signed veteran lefty pitcher David Wells to join their much-maligned rotation. The 44-year old Torrance native (who was raised by a bunch of bikers...as in Hells Angels-types) is expected to replace the beleaguered Brett Tomko as early as Sunday when they play the NY Mets. The Dodgers hope he'll infuse the same veteran spark that Greg Maddux did last year...though probably not as much. But hey, at least Wells is a former Red Sox, which makes manager Grady Little happy, and that his agent is not Scott Boras, which makes general manager Ned Colletti happy as well. Another happy Dodger will be setup pitcher Jonathan Broxton, who will soon be relieved to know that he's no longer the fattest guy on the team.

Nice. The Dodgers sign an aging starting pitcher who hasn't had a good season in years, and who's had a miserable season in the same division. What could go wrong?

Hmmmm the fattest Dodger? You forgot the Saenz Killer Tomato, my militant padawan.

The Militant believes most Dodger fans have forgotten about Saenz lately....grumble...

Some Dodgers cant read the 3rd base coaches "Saenz" and keep running home only to get thrown out.

David Wells wasn't raised in LA, but he was born in Torrance. He was raised in San Diego. He graduated Point Loma High in 1982. He grew up around the Dago Hells Angels when they were in Ocean Beach. His mom was a 81 supporter.
