Wells' career still alive (more than we can say for his pancreas)

Throwing Smoke favourite David Wells is back in in the bigs, this time with the LA Dodgers. Wells agreed to a contract Thursday and won his Dodgers debut Sunday night; pitching five innings of seven-hit baseball and allowing two runs to beat the Mets 6-2. The 44-year-old Wells was designated for assignment by his hometown San Diego Padres on Aug. 9 and placed on release waivers four days later. The Dodgers will be his ninth team in a 21-year major league career.

Considering this is the franchise that introduced the all you can eat section in the bleachers, they better not plan on using Wells in the bullpen if he fails as a starter.
