Clearing out a few things:

- David Wells got designated for assignment by the Padres. It looks like this is the end of the road for Boomer, which would be too bad. Wells was one of the games true characters and was never afraid the say exactly what he was feeling. Bob Ryan points out a few interesting things about him, including the fact that he has a better career record that Hall of Famers Catfish Hunter and Don Drysdale and that he has an amazing 44 post-season decisions. Those kind of statistics don't happen by accident. Plus he wore Babe Ruth's hat (which he had bought in a auction) while pitching a game for the Yankees. How can you not love that?

- I'm not sure what it says about me, but I have always been a fan of pitchers who have been, let's say, less than popular with management. Jim Bouton, Bill Lee and Wells are three examples. I'm sure it means something.

- Has anyone else noticed that the Cardinals have crept back into the NL Central race? They are only 4 games behind Milwaukee and the Cubs in the loss column as of this morning.
