Padres get better (also older and fatter)

As expected, David Wells will continue his baseball career, signing with the Padres for one year. He’ll make between $3 and $7 million. Now, if he can just stay healthy for an entire season.

Wells, bearer of a career 4.07 ERA, has journeyed over a good portion of the Major Leagues. Starting in the Toronto system, his stints were as follows:

New York
New York
San Diego
San Diego

His greatest success came in New York, where he won a World Series championship with the Yankees in 1998. He went back to the series during his second stint in New York in 2003. That was when he famously bragged about his lack of conditioning, only to become injured during the Series, paving the way for Jose Contreras and Enrique Wilson to blow the game (and ultimately the series) for the Yankees.
