I'm not quite sure how I feel about this hiring, but TBS is adding David Wells to their lineup, and not just on a trial basis. The former Major Leaguer has signed a multi-year contract and will be assigned to some Sunday games right away. Via the Associated Press....
Opinionated former pitcher David Wells has signed a multiyear contract to serve as an analyst for TBS.I'm not sure how I feel about giving any former player getting a "multi-year deal" right off the bat, especially someone who I've considered quite an ass, but maybe David Wells is worth it. Let's hope Tuner knows what their doing.
The network will make the official announcement Tuesday.
The 45-year-old Wells will work as a commentator for some Sunday regular-season games, forming a three-man booth with Chip Caray and either Ron Darling or Buck Martinez. He'll also appear in the studio during TBS's playoff coverage.
The big lefty went 239-157 in 21 major-league seasons with nine teams. He threw a perfect game for the Yankees in 1998.
