Party May Be Over For Boomer

The San Diego Padres announced on Wednesday that they were ending their relationship with veteran starter David Wells as they need the roster spot to activate All-Star starter Chris Young on Thursday. Padres General Manager Kevin Towers told the 44 year old pitcher that he would not make his next start, and if he wanted to keep pitching the team would designate him for assignment in order for him to possibly latch on to another team. Towers also told "Boomer" that if he wanted to retire the Padres would work out the arrangements. The southpaw has struggled all year going 5-8, but especially recently as he has gone 0-3 in his last four starts.
