“You get caught up in hitting home runs and seeing how far you can hit ‘em and your swing changes,” Wells said Tuesday afternoon as he prepared to play his first Spring Training game for the Yankees.
And that was the focus of Wells’ offseason. To shorten his swing. To hit the ball to right field. To stop worrying about home runs.
To hit the ball to right field...
Predicted batting line: .300/.300/.311
invoking the Magic of Pinstripes
Hoping to be surprised by a Wells' resurgence. After all, Vernon is in much better shape than Boomer, and he only has to play regularly until Granderson returns. <fingers crossed while invoking the Magic of Pinstripes>
There will be, with 100% certainty, at least a week...five or so games...where he will catch fire and a billion people will scream about him shafting the Jays and the Angels. Then the world will return to normal.
Here's what I'm worried about:
Wells has a great two months, hits .330 with 8 or 9 homers. Girardi mixes him into the lineup regularly the rest of the season, and he goes back to normal, but his overall line looks pretty good after the first two months.
The Yankees decide to let Granderson walk and make Wells their every day LF in 2014.
