First of all, I can’t take credit for the new Vernon Wells line above – that is courtesy of eyebleaf at Sports and the City. Hopefully, you’ll see it on a sign at the Rogers Centre over the course of the season.
It made me recall when fans would happily post signs that boasted of the “V-Dub Club”. In actually, it was probably only a few years ago, but considering all that Vernon Wells has been through in the past few seasons, it seems like an eternity.
Now here we are almost two and a half weeks into the seasons, and Wells is tied for the league lead in home runs. Who ever would have though? Not me, for one … but that’s the great thing about baseball. One bad season is exactly that – ONE bad season. There is always a chance for redemption the next year.
It’s unsure whether Vernon’s swing adjustment did the trick or if he’s just seeing the ball better. Either way, it’s good to have the old Vernon back. Welcome once again to the V-Dub Club.
